William  Milne,  C.A.,  Aberdeen. 

By  Saint  Andrew,  here's  a  common  fellow,  a  stipendiary,  with  four  pounds  a  year  and  a  livery 
cloak,  thinks  himself  too  good  to  serve  Ritt  Master  Dugald  Dalgetty  of  Drurathwacket,  who  has 
studied  humanity  at  the  Marischal  College  of  Aberdeen,  and  served  half  the  princes  of  Europe. — 
Legend  of  Montrose. 

William's  Father,  a  man  always  venerable  to  me,  had  founded  Marischal  College,  Aberdeen, 
—  where  for  a  few,  in  these  stern  granite  Countries,  the  Diviner  Pursuits  are  still  possible  (thank 
God  and  this  Keith)  on  frugal  oatmeaL — Carljrle's  Friedrich. 

Why  have  we  not  a  history  of  Marischal  College  and  University,  or,  at  least,  an  Athenae  et  Fasti 
of  that  venerable  institution  ?  .  .  .  The  roll  of  the  notabilities  of  Marischal  College  might  seem  not 
an  insignificant  one.  At  all  events,  it  is  the  bounden  duty  of  any  Anthony  Wood  that  may  be  living 
now  in  Aberdeen  to  do  his  best  to  draw  it  up.  .  .  .  For,  alas !  the  history  may  now  be  rounded  off 
and  complete.  There  is  still  a  fine  granite  building  called  Marischal  College,  in  which  a  portion  of 
the  work  of  the  United  University  is  carried  on ;  but  the  real  antique  establishment — Dugald 
Dalgetty's  Marischal  College  and  mine — is  no  longer  in  rerum  natura. — Professor  Masson  in 
Macmillan's  Magazine,  February,  1864. 


The  first  volume  of  the  Fasti  Academiae  Mariscallanae  dealt 
with  the  Endowments  of  the  College.  It  was  the  intention  of 
the  editor  to  include  in  the  second  volume  not  merely  the  Roll 
of  Officers,  Graduates  and  Alumni,  but  such  other  University 
records  as  seemed  worthy  of  print.  The  unexpectedly  great 
amount  of  space  occupied  by  the  lists  of  names — the  Fasti  proper 
— has,  however,  made  it  necessary  to  postpone  selections  from 
Faculty  Minutes,  from  Visitation  Reports,  from  Acts  of  Parlia- 
ment and  of  Privy  Council,  from  the  Register  of  the  Aberdeen 
Town  Council,  and  from  other  muniments  illustrating  the  history 
of  the  University. 

The  editor  desires,  meanwhile,  to  register  the  sources, 
manuscript  and  printed,  from  which  he  has  compiled  the  lists 
printed  in  the  volume  now  issued ;  and  to  chronicle  the  friends 
whose  obliging  assistance  has  enabled  him  to  identify  so  many 
of  the  persons  that  these  lists  include. 

The  youngest  of  the  Scottish  Universities,  Marischal 
College  is  singular  in  possessing  no  continuous  record  of 
teachers  or  of  students.  Their  names  have  had  to  be 
brought  together  from  printed  Theses,  from  occasional  Matri- 
culation rolls,  from  Chamber  Maills  accounts,  from  Diploma 
vouchers,  from  Presentations  to  bursaries  by  Town  Council 
and    Incorporated    Trades,    from    Grammar   School   exit   lists, 


and  from  other  sources  detailed  at  length  below.  Yet  this 
lack  of  continuity  is,  to  some  extent  at  least,  compensated  for 
by  the  amount  of  information  that  can  be  obtained  regarding 
the  parentage  of  the  alumni — for  bursars  from  1619,  for  all 
students  from  1773 — information  such  as  prior  to  i860  is  not 
known  to  have  been  recorded  in  the  archives  of  the  Universities 
of  St.  Andrews,  Glasgow,  King's  College,  and  Edinburgh.

^  On  the  fly-leaf  of  this  volume  appears  the  following  note  in  the  handwriting  of  the  Rev. 
Peter  Colin  Campbell,  Principal  of  the  University  of  Aberdeen: — 

"  When  in  Edinburgh  attending  the  General  Assembly  in  May,  1870,  I  was  informed  by 
the  Lord  Clerk  Register,  the  Rt.  Honble.  Sir  William  Gibson-Craig,  Bart.,  that  this  volume 
had  been  found  in  the  Register  Office.  I  requested  that  it  might  be  given  up  to  me  for  the 
University,  and,  at  Sir  W.  G.  C.'s  suggestion,  embodied  that  request  in  a  letter  to  him.  This 
letter  he  forwarded  to  H.M.  Government,  and,  in  accordance  with  the  instructions  sent  to  him, 
he  placed  the  volume  in  my  hands  on  behalf  of  the  University.  Neither  Sir  W.  G.  C,  nor  any 
of  the  officials  of  the  Register  Office,  succeeded  in  ascertaining  when  and  how  the  volume  had 
been  brought  to  Edinburgh,  The  conjecture  that  it  had  been  taken  possession  of  by  the 
Government  in  connection  with  the  political  troubles  of  1715,  in  which  the  Earl  Marischal 
and  the  officials  of  the  College  were  implicated,  is  obviated  by  the  fact  that  the  volume  con- 
tains entries  as  late  as  1721.  The  most  probable  conjecture,  we  concluded,  was  that  it  had 
been  forwarded  to  Edinburgh  in  connection  with  some  legal  process  in  the  last  century,  and 
had  not  been  reclaimed.

^  In  not  a  few  instances  the  editor  has  been  obliged  to  call  in  question  the  identifications 
of  the  Fasti  Eccl.  Scot.  It  must  be  borne  in  mind  that,  when  compiling  his  monumental 
work,  Dr.  Scott  had  access  neither  to  Album  I.  (see  footnote  on  p.  viii.)  nor  to  any  of  the  records 
used  by  the  present  editor  to  fill  up  the  gap  from  1682-83  to  1699-1700,  nor  to  the  Town 
Council  Register,  where  alone,  from  i6ig  to  1773,  are  entered  the  names  of  students'  fathers. 
The  earlier  graduation  lists  of  St.  Andrews  (not  yet  printed),  of  Glasgow  (printed  in  part  in 
the  Miinimenta),  of  King's  College  (printed  in  part  in  the  Fasti  Aberd.),  and  of  Edinburgh 
(printed  in  1858  and  1867),  have  no  record  of  parentage.  These  appear  to  have  been 
examined  by  Dr.  Scott,  as  also  probably  Albums  II. -IV.  of  Marischal  College,  and  his  method 
seems  to  have  been  to  identify  A.  B.,  ordained  minister  of  the  parish  of  C.  in  say  1650  with 
the  like  named  graduate  of  St.  Andrews,  Glasgow,  King's  Coll.  or  Edinburgh  nearest  in  date 
to  1650 :  allowance  being  made,  in  doubtful  cases,  for  the  proximity  of  C.  to  these  four 
Universities  respectively.  It  is  easy  to  see  how  some  of  these  identifications  might  be  upset 
by  the  discovery  of  the  Marischal  registers,  with  in  many  cases  the  parentage  of  the  students.

The  manuscript  Collections  of  Professor  William  Knight, 
partly  in  the  University  Library,  and  partly  in  the  hands  of  his 
surviving  daughter,^  have  proved  of  immense  service.  Of  the 
older  College  archives  Knight  had  a  minute  knowledge,  and 
from  1 8 10,  when  he  first  became  associated  with  the  teaching 
staff  of  the  University,  until  his  death  in  1844,  he  lost  no 
opportunity  of  recording  every  incident  bearing  upon  College 
history.  A  considerable  portion  of  his  Collections  had  been 
written  out  by  him,  for  use,  it  would  appear,  by  the  original 
Spalding  Club. 

Principal  Sir  William  D.  Geddes  has  furnished  many  valu- 
able identifications  and  suggestions. 

The  Rev.  Stephen  Ree,  minister  of  Boharm,  has  been  able 
to  supply  numerous  details  regarding  the  schoolmasters  of  the

district  served   by  the   Universities  of  Aberdeen,  a  subject  of 
which  he  has  made  a  special  study. 

The  intimate  acquaintance  with  Aberdeenshire  genealogy 
possessed  by  Surgeon-Colonel  William  Johnston  of  Newton 
Dee  has  contributed  much  to  the  accurate  identification  of 
students  at  the  College  during  the  last  hundred  years  of  its 

To  Mr.  James  F.  Kellas  Johnstone,  London,  the  editor 
is  under  obligations  which  he  cannot  adequately  express.  Mr. 
Johnstone's  extensive  knowledge  of  the  men  and  books  of 
Northern  Scotland,  especially  during  the  seventeenth  and 
eighteenth  centuries,  has  been  freely  drawn  upon  ;  and  he  has 
grudged  neither  time  nor  trouble  in  examining  records  and 
verifying  references  that  were  inconvenient  of  access  to  the 
editor.  It  may  be  safely  said  that  there  is  hardly  a  page  of 
this  volume  but  owes  some  of  its  interest  to  Mr.  Johnstone's 
diligence.  The  unusually  complete  Index,  which  will  be  issued 
to  members  in  a  separate  form,  is  due  entirely  to  him. 

These  four  members  of  the  New  Spalding  Club  have  also 
laid  the  editor  under  a  debt  of  gratitude  by  reading  all  the  proof 
sheets  of  this  volume,  as  they  issued  from  the  press.    • 

The  editor  has  further  to  express  his  indebtedness  to  Mr. 
A.  M.  Munro,  Town  House,  Aberdeen,  and  Mr.  R.  S.  Rait, 
New  College,  Oxford,  for  frequent  assistance  ;  to  several  old 
Marischal  College  alumni  and  others,  for  the  use  of  Class 
Records  and  for  information  regarding  students  ;  to  the  pos- 
sessors of  portraits,  who  have  permitted  their  reproduction  in  this 
volume;  and  to  Mr.  Joseph  Ogilvie,  LL.D.,  and  the  late  Mr. 
Alexander  Cruickshank,  LL.D.,  who  defrayed  the  cost  of  the 
photogravures  of  Dr.  James  Melvin  and  Professor  John

may  be  "  minister  verbi,"  but  the  Earls  Marischal  were  regarded  as  Chancellors  till  their  for- 
feiture in  1716.  Their  usual  title,  however,  was  "  patron,"  the  college  being  called  the  "  Earl

^  This  very  scarce  volume  contains  three  epigrams  by  Arthur  Johnston,  which  have 
eluded  the  notice  of  the  editor  of  Musa  Latina  A  herd.      They  run  as  follows : — 


"Tot  modo  terrarum  dominus,  nunc  Kethus  Olympum 

Possidet  et  superi  jugera  vasta  soli. 
Marmoreas  fugiens  et  dignas  regibus  arces, 

Aurea  nunc  coeli,  cum  love,  tecta  colit. 
Et  quos  audierat  saeclis  egisse  triumphos 

Bis  tribus,  ingentes  hie  prope  cernit  avos. 
Quemque  clientelis  stipatum  vidimus,  astra 

Nunc  super,  aligero  cingitur  ille  choro. 
Et  satur  ambrosia  est  et  vivit  nectare  Divum, 

Cui  latices  tellus  ante  dapesque  dedit. 
Si  bona  praeteritis  confers  praesentia,  Kethus 

Dum  foret  in  terris,  pauper  inopsque  fuit. 
Si  tamen  ingenii  dotes,  animique  potentis 

Aurea  pensentur  munera,  dives  erat. 


"  Ipse  tua  radians  et  avita  luce  coruscus, 

Gentis  Hyperboreae  gloria,  Kethe,  jaces. 
Illustris  tibi  vita  fuit,  mors  aemula  vitae  est. 

Ilia  tuis  meritis,  conjugis  ista  nitet. 
Te  Dea  complexa  est  morientem  mollibus  ulnis, 

Fovit  et  ambrosio  frigida  coUa  sinu  : 
Ore  legens  animam,  labris  infudit  amomum, 

Fixit  et  Idaliis  oscula  plena  rosis. 
Et  sibi  sidereos  lachrymis  suffudit  ocellos, 

Et  clausit  nivea  lumina  functa  manu. 
Si  possent  gelido  Superi  succumbere  letho, 

Sic  ego  crediderim  Numina  velle  mori. 

«« ALIUD. 

"  Kethe  soli  coelique  decus,  non  unius  uxor 

Virtutis  specimen,  te  moriente,  dedit. 
Luminibus  lachrymas  libavit  et  oscula  labris, 

Dextraque  palpebram  clausit  utramque  manus. 
Luminibus  luctum,  labris  testatur  amorem, 

Dextra  manus  fortem  monstrat  et  esse  piam.

Attainted  1715-16  ;  died  (unmarried)  at  Potsdam,  28th  May,  1778.  Two  por- 
traits in  possession  of  University.  {Diet.  Nat.  Biog.  Jacobite  Attempt  of  1719,

ac  magnanimi  herois  D.  Gulielmi  Comitis  Marischalli  filio  primogenito "  ; 
those  of  1714,  "  potentissimo  heroi  comiti  Marischallo  ".  The  last  of  the 
Earls  graduated  M.A.  of  his  ancestral  college  in  1712,  his  younger  brother, 
James,  afterwards  Marshal  Keith,  taking  the  same  degree  three  years  later : 
infra.  As  to  the  present  representatives  of  the  Earls  Marischal,  compare  the 
genealogical  trees  on  pp.  4,  87,  with  the  articles,  "  The  heirs  of  the  Keiths,"  in 
Scottish  Notes  and  Queries  for  May,  1894,  and  September,  1896,  where  many 
authorities  are  quoted  ;  and  with  G.  E.  C.'s  Complete  Peerage.) 

On  the  attainder  of  the  Earls  Marischal,  their  rights  of  College  patronage 
passed  to  the  Crown,  but  the  Commissions  of  Visitation  in  1716  and  1717 
apparently  made  no  provision  for  the  appointment  of  a  Chancellor.  In  1727 
we  find  the  College  petitioning  King  George  II.  to  nominate  as  Chancellor  his 
Majesty's  second  son,  William,  aged  six,  who  had  been  created  Duke  of 
Cumberland  a  month  before  the  date  of  the  Petition. 

^On  6th  January,  1643,  George,  second  Marquis  of  Huntly,  was  elected  Chancellor  of 
King  Charles'  University  (Vol.  I.,  p.  255) ;  but  the  Marischal  College  members  absented 
themselves  from  the  meeting,  and  refused  to  recognise  the  election.  (O^.  and  Grad.  of  King's 
Coll.,  p.  4) 


"  Unto  the  King's  Most  Excellent  Majesty, 

"  The  most  humble  Petition  and  Address  of  the  Rector,  Principal,  Professors 
and  Masters  of  His  Majestie's  Marischall  University  of  Aberdeen. 

"  May  it  please  Your  Majestic. 

"  We,  Your  Majestie's  most  dutyfull  and  loyal  subjects,  haveing  the  great 
honour  above  all  other  Universitys  in  the  Nation  to  be  immediately  under 
your  Royal  Patronage,  humbly  beg  leave  to  represent  that  this  Your  Majes- 
tie's University  is  at  great  loss  by  the  want  of  a  Chancelour.  Wherefor,  if  it 
be  aggreeable  to  Your  Majestie's  Royal  Pleasure,  we  earnestly  and  unani- 
mously intreat  that  Your  Majestie  our  Royal  Patron  would  be  graciously 
pleas'd  to  nominate  and  constitute  His  Royal  Highness,  William,  Duke  of 
Cumberland,  Chancelour  of  this  Your  University  ;  which  will  not  only  signaly 
honour,  but  greatly  tend  to  the  flourishing  thereof.  And  in  evidence  of  our 
hearty  concurrence,  so  farr  as  we  are  interested,  we  have  presum'd  to  trans- 
mitt  a  most  unanimous  commission  unto  His  Royal  Highness. 

"  May  God,  who  has  in  great  mercy  to  these  Kingdoms  given  Your  Majestie 
peaceable  possession  of  the  throne  of  Your  Royal  Ancestors,  greatly  prosper 
and  long  preserve  Your  Majestie  with  your  Royal  Consort  our  Gracious  Queen, 
and  all  the  Royal  Branches  of  Your  August  Family ;  by  which,  under  God, 
the  great  happyness  of  these  Kingdoms  can  only  be  secur'd  and  transmitted 
to  posterity. 

"  Given  at  Your  Majestie's  College  Marischal  of  Aberdeen,  the  twenty-eighth 
day  of  August,  in  the  first  year  of  Your  Majestie's  Reign." 

"  Commission  to  his  highness,  William,  Duke  of  Cumberland. 

"  We,  the  Rector,  Principal,  Professors,  and  Masters  of  the  Marischal  Uni- 
versity of  Aberdeen,  takeing  into  our  consideration  the  great  loss  this  University 
is  at  by  the  want  of  a  Chancelour,  and  how  much  it  will  tend  to  the  honour 
and  flourishing  of  the  same,  that  some  honourable  and  proper  person  were 
elected  into  the  said  office,  we  all  did  and  hereby  doe  unanimously  nominate 
and  elect  His  Royal  Highness  the  High  and  Mighty  Prince,  William,  Duke 
OF  Cumberland,  Chancelour  of  this  University,  which  office  we  most  humbly 
and  earnestly  intreat  His  Royal  Highness  may  accept  of.  And  by  the  tenor 
of  these  presents  we  declare  that  His  Royal  Highness  shall  from  henceforth 
have  and  enjoy  all  powers,  jurisdiction,  and  honours  which  any  Chancelour  of 
this  University  by  the  Foundation  Charter  had  or  might  in  times  past  have 
enjoy'd  and  exercis'd.  Promisemg  all  subjection  and  obedience  unto  His 
Royal  Highness  due  on  our  part.  In  Wittness  whereof  these  present  letters 
haveing  the  strength  of  a  publick  instrument  are  inscrib'd  by  us  at  his  Majestie's 
Marischall  College  of  Aberdeen,  this  twenty-ninth  day  of  August,  one  thousand 
seven  hundred  and  twenty-seven  years,  and  of  His  Majestie's  reign  the  first 
year.  And  for  further  confirmation  we  have  hereunto  appended  the  great  seal 
of  this  University.

The  result  of  this  petition  is  unknown.     The  Duke  became  in  1746  Chancellor 
of  St.  Andrews.     Kennedy  (Annals  0/  Aberdeen,  Vol.  II.,  p.  118)  gives  the  Duke 
of  Cumberland  as  elected  Chancellor  in  1747,  but  Kennedy's  dates  are  notori- 
ously inaccurate.     See  list  of  Regents,  p.  31.

The  date  of  election  is  not  recorded.  The  duke,  an  alumnus  of  the  Univer- 
sities of  Glasgow  and  Utrecht,  was  created  Earl  of  Hay  in  1706,  and  succeeded 
his  brother,  John,  in  the  dukedom  in  1743.  In  1716  he  was  chosen  Chancellor 
of  King's  College,  but  "  upon  weighty  motives "  did  not  accept  (Off.  and 
Grad.,  p.  5).  Kennedy  gives  John,  Duke  of  Argyll,  as  Chancellor  in  1754,  but 
his  names  are  only  less  inaccurate  than  his  dates.  Died  15th  April,  1761.

M.A.,  Oxon.,  1768.     Elected  7th  November.     {Rect.  Book  :  Diploma,  £1  is.) 

"  Lord  Auckland,  an  English  nobleman,  who  had  never  even  visited  Scotland, 
and  was  not  educated  there,  was  chosen  Chancellor  solely  at  the  instigation  of 
the  Principal,  Dr.  Brown,  whose  patron  he  was,  and  who  had  got  acquainted 
with  him  when  holding  his  Utrecht  situation,  at  which  time  Auckland  was 
ambassador  to  the  States.  The  proper  Chancellor  to  have  been  chosen  in 
1796  was  the  Marquis  of  Huntly,  as  Professor  Copland  proposed,  and  never 
voted  for  Lord  Auckland.,  In  going  after  Court  patronage,  the  College  fell  into 
a  mistake.  All  the  correspondence  passed  between  the  Chancellor  and  Dr. 
Brown,  in  letters  often  not  seen  by  the  Faculty.  Hence  the  necessity  of 
the  following  order  :  '  1811,  May  31.  Principal  Brown  to  read  to  the  Faculty 
all  letters  which  he  writes  in  their  name,  and  to  lodge  copies  in  the  letter

Record  in  Faculty  Minute  Book,  30th  June;  installed  2nd  Sept.  On  the 
union  of  King's  and  Marischal  Colleges  became  joint  Chancellor  (with 
fourth  Earl  of  Aberdeen)  of  the  University  of  Aberdeen,  15th  Sept.,  i860;

1598.     Peter   Blackburn,  the   elder,   minister   of  Aberdeen,    Dean   of 
Signs  feu  charter  of  date  5th  Sept.,  1598  (Vol.  I.,  p.  76). 
i6ig.     Patrick   Dun,   doctor  of  medicine,    Rector ;    William    Forbes, 
doctor  of  divinity,   D.  of  F. 
Present  at  visitation  of  the  College,  31st  December,  when  an  ordinance  was 
made  "  that  the  College  fees  payable  by  the  students  to  the  regents  should  be 
conform  as  they  were  appointed  at  a  visitation  in  the  King's  College,  viz., 

^  For  the  duties  and  method  of  election  of  the  Rector  and  Dean  of  Faculty,  see  the 
Foundation  Charter  (Vol.  I.,  pp.  44-58).  The  Universities  (Scotland)  Act  of  1858,  §  10,  pro- 
vided that  the  Rector  of  the  University  of  Aberdeen  should  be  elected  by  the  matriculated 
students  "  voting  according  to  the  present  usage  in  Marischal  College  ".  There  has  thus  been 
preserved  in  Aberdeen  a  closer  approximation  to  early  academic  usage  than  in  the  other  Scot- 
tish Universities,  for  in  Aberdeen  alone  the  Rector  is  still  chosen  by  four  procurators,  elected 
previously  by  the  Nations.  In  Glasgow  the  Nations  do  not  elect  procurators,  but  vote 
directly  for  the  Rector ;  in  St.  Andrews  the  Nations  were  abolished  by  Ordinance  No.  4  of 
the  1858  Commission ;  in  Edinburgh  they  never  existed. 

"  The  definition  of  the  Nations  given  in  the  Charter  does  not,  in  some  respects,  corre- 
spond to  what  has  been  long  followed  in  practice.  The  nation  to  which  foreigners  are  to  be 
assigned  is  not  mentioned  ;  it  has  been  the  custom  to  add  them  to  the  Angusians,  or  those 
born  south  of  the  Cam  o'  Month.  The  word  diocesis  employed  in  the  Charter  evidently  indi- 
cates the  true  division.  The  Abredonensis  diocesis  is  divided  into  the  Marriensis  and Buchan- 
ensis.  Marriensis  has  Garioch  added  to  it,  and  comprehends  not  only  the  tract  between  the 
Dee  and  the  Don,  but  also  Alford,  Strathdon,  and  Garioch,  or  all  to  the  south  of  Formartin  ; 
it  also  includes  the  parishesof  Strachan,  Banchory-Ternan,  Banchory- Devenick,  and  Maryculter, 
in  the  county  of  Kincardine,  but  in  the  diocese  of  Aberdeen.  Buchanensis  ought  to  include 
Buchan,  Formartin,  and  Strathbogie,  or  those  parts  of  the  Counties  of  Aberdeen  and  Banff 
lying  between  the  Deveron  on  the  West  and  North,  and  Mar  and  Garioch  on  the  South,  ex- 
clusive of  all  that  part  of  Scotland  not  included  in  the  two  foregoing  divisions,  lying  to  the 
North  of  the  Mons  Grampius  (Carn  o'  Month),  which  contains  the  Moraviensis.  But  as  the 
parishes  of  Huntly,  Gartly,  Rhynie  and  Essie,  Glass,  and  Cairnie  were  not  within  the  diocese 
of  Aberdeen,  they  ought  to  be  included  in  the  Moraviensis ;  and  Formartin  is  by  custom 
taken  in  with  Mar,  Buchan  being  viewed  as  having  the  Ythan  for  its  Southern  boundary."

to  grant  a  warrant  for  holding  this  on  any  day  other  than  March  i.  On  the 
advice  of  the  Chancellor  no  new  election  was  held.  (Coll.  Minutes,  Sept.  7, 
Nov.  7,  Dec.  25.)  The  election  proceedings  of  1829  were  very  disorderly. 
"  During  nearly  an  hour  amid  great  clamour  and  noises  of  various  kinds, 
short  speeches  were  made  by  different  students.  .  .  .  An  attempt  was  made 
by  a  considerable  number  of  the  students  to  force  their  way  into  the  hall 
where  the  Senatus  were  sitting  ;  which  attempt  was  repelled  by  the  Professors." 
{Minutes.)  Hume  claimed  the  right  as  Rector  of  the  preceding  year  to  have 
a  casting  vote,  which  he  proposed  to  give  to  his  opponent,  but  the  Senatus

"  Brighton,  Tuesday  Evening,  20th  February,  1849. 

"  Sir, — I  beg  to  assure  you  that  I  am  very  sensible  of  the  feeling  which  has 
induced  you  to  propose  me  as  a  candidate  for  the  Lord  Rectorship  of  your 
College,  and  that  I  feel  much  beholden  to  you  for  that  mark  of  your  regard 
and  consideration. 

"  But,  in  reply  to  your  note  in  which  you  do  me  the  favour  to  ask  my  con- 
sent to  this  nomination,  I  am  constrained  to  say,  without  any  reservation 
whatever,  that  I  do  not  aspire  to  the  high  honour  in  question,  and  that  I  must 
entreat  you  to  withdraw  my  name  at  my  express  desire.  I  take  the  earliest 
opportunity  in  my  power  of  making  this  communication  to  you ;  but  my 
absence  from  town  for  a  week  past,  and  my  absence  from  this  place  during 
this  day,  have  combined  to  prevent  my  answering  your  letter  sooner.  It  was 
forwarded  here  this  morning.     I  am,  Sir,  yours  faithfully  and  obliged, 

"  Charles  Dickens."

"  5  Cheyne  Row,  Chelsea, 

"  London,  22  feby,  1850. 
"  Gentlemen, — Your  announcement  very  much  surprised  me,  not  surely  in 
an  unpleasant  way,  and  I  beg  in  the  meantime  to  thank  you  very  cordially, 
you  and  my  other  young  Friends  in  Aberdeen,  for  the  honour  you  are  doing 
me.  The  election  to  a  merely  formal  office,  1  suppose,  may  go  in  this  way  or 
that,  without  momentous  consequences ;  but  the  fact  that  ingenuous  young 
souls  in  your  University,  in  poor  old  Scotland  far  away,  are  loyally  disposed 
to  me,  and  willing  to  testify  that  feeling  by  such  methods  as  they  have — this 
is  already  a  possession,  of  a  valuable  and  to  me  almost  of  an  affecting 
nature,  which  I  shall  not  have  to  part  with.  With  the  election  itself  I  must 
not  in  the  least  interfere,  for  or  against.  In  respect  of  personally  visiting 
Aberdeen,  too,  I  am  constrained  to  say  that  travelling  is  at  all  times  very  un- 
towardly  to  me,  and  that  at  present  there  are  some  special  causes  rather  de- 
taining me  here  ; — on  the  whole,  that  if  there  be  no  real  duty,  but  only  a  formal 
or  ceremonial  one,  to  be  done  in  Aberdeen,  I  had  much  better  not  come,  but 
that  if  there  do  appear  some  real  fraction  of  duty  to  be  done,  in  the  event 
of  my  election,  I  will  certainly  make  an  effort  to  come.  More  I  cannot  say  at 
present.     And  so  with  many  thanks  and  kind  regards,  I  remain,  Gentlemen, 

your  most  obed*

of  Principal  Gilbert  Gray.     (Dedication  to  Theses  of  1673,  infra.) 

1602.^     William  Forbes. 

Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Stated  in  Sydserf's  Life  to  have  been  appointed  Pro- 
fessor of  Logic  (i.e.,  teacher  of  the  Semi  class)  soon  after  his  graduation  in 
1601,  and  to  have  taught  for  four  sessions.  Mentioned  in  Aberdeen  Presbytery 
Records,  ist  November,  1605 ;  and  in  Principal  Gilbert  Gray's  Rental  of  1606. 
(Vol.  I.,  p.  107.)     Afterwards  Principal,  p.  28. 

1603.     Thomas  Reid. 

Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Demits  office  of  teacher  in  Grammar  School  on 
appointment  as  Regent,  12th  October,  1603.  (T.  C.  Reg.,  xli.,  415.)  After- 
wards Secretary  "for  the  Latine  tongue  "  to  James  VI.,  and  a  benefactor  to 
the  College  Library.  (Vol.  L,  p.  194.)  Portrait  in  possession  of  the  University 
is  reproduced  in  Vol.  L,  and  in  the  great  window,  Mitchell  Hall,  Mar.  Coll.

^  Three  in  number  by  the  Foundation  Charter  (Vol.  I. ,  p.  42) ;  a  fourth  was  added  in 
1620,  when  the  Principal  ceased  to  teach  the  highest  class  (p.  186).  Originally  the  regents 
were  professors  in  the  modern  sense  (p.  64),  but  this  system  was  abandoned  about  1642.  (Of. 
Off.  'and  Grad.,  p.  315.)  It  was,  however,  resumed  in  1753,  infra.  No  record  of  presentation 
to  regencies  is  extant  before  1679  :  the  earlier  names  have  been  collected  from  various  sources, 
and  the  list  is  obviously  imperfect.  Kennedy  gives  29  regents,  "with  the  dates  of  their 
several  admissions,"  from  1593  to  1676,  but  at  least  25  of  his  29  dates  are  wrong !  A  table 
showing  the  sequence  of  teaching  is  attempted  in  the  Appendix. 

*  When  a  name  is  stated  to  appear  anywhere,  what  is  implied  is  that  it  is  mentioned  as 
being  that  of  a  Regent. 

^  "  [Andrew]  Young,  having  graduated  in  Edinburgh,  had  gone  to  serve  as  regent  in 
Marischal  College,  which  was  always  a  good  School  of  Mathematics.  .  .  .  He  came  back 
to  Edinburgh  as  regent  in  1601."  Sir  Alexander  Grant  {Story  of  the  Univ.  of  Edinb.,  II., 
293),  quoting  from  Professor  Chrystal's  Inaugural  Address.  Dr.  Chrystal  writes  that  he  can- 
not recall  his  authority  for  this  statement.  "  Marischal  "  is  probably  a  slip  for  "  King's  ".

Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Mentioned,  1610,  as  Professor  of  Logic  in  MS.  C 
3.  70,  University  Library.  Probably  succeeded  Forbes  in  his  chair,  as  he 
afterwards  (1621)  did  in  the  Principalship,  p.  28,

Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Signs  assedation  to  John  Leslie,  13th  November, 
1613.     (Bulk  of  Reg.)     Bajan,  1605. 

16      ?     Peter  Blackburn. 

Mentioned  in  T.  C.  Reg.,  xlvii.,  487,  15th  March,  1616,  together  with  John 
Ross  and  Adam  Reid.  Kennedy  gives  Peter  Blackburn,  John  Row,  and  David 
Reid  as  regents  in  1593.  This  is  manifestly  a  group  of  blunders.  (C/. 
Kennedy's  MS.  Index  to  the  T.  C.  Reg.,  s.v. "  College  ".)  Peter  Blackburn, 
afterwards  Bishop  of  Aberdeen,  signs  the  Foundation  Charter  as  a  witness 
in  1593,  and  is  Dean  of  Faculty  in  1598,  p.  10,  but  there  is  no  proof  that 
he  acted  as  Regent.  He  died  14th  June,  1616.  Author  (ace.  to  Scott's  Fasti) 
of  a  Treatise  against  James  Gordon  the  Jesuit.  The  Regent  of  1616  seems  to 
have  been  his  son  (Spald.  Club  Misc.,  Vol.  V.,  p.  140;  and  Retours  of  Services 
of  Heirs,  17th  July,  1616),  who  appears  as  a  Semi  of  1605,  and  died  in  1619. 
(Retours,  30th   November,   1619.) 

16      ?     Adam  Reid. 

Ut  supra.  Given  by  Kennedy  under  1619,  in  which  year  he  was  promoted 
from  a  regency  to  be  Minister  of  Methlic.  He  was  younger  brother  of  Secre- 
tary Reid  above  mentioned.     (Scott's  Fasti.)     Bajan,  1609. 

16      ?     John  Ross. 

Ut  supra;  and  signs  appointment  of  a  Liddell  Bursar,  3rd  June,  1616. 
(Buik  of  Reg.)     Semi,  1605. 

1616.     John  Gordon. 

Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Must  have  succeeded  Blackburn,  as  (together  with 
John  Ross  and  Adam  Reid)  he  signs  assedation  to  Patrick  Symmers,  December, 
1616.  See  also  letter  from  the  laird  of  Drum.  (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.,  "  Bursaries," 
XXIII.,  I.)  Mentioned  (with  Reid)  in  precept  of  warning  against  Menzies, 
3rd  April,  1617  ;  and  (with  Reid  and  Massie)  in  decreet  against  Menzies,  29th 
June,  i6ig.'    (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.  Mass  II.,  Nos.  42,  47.)    Bajan,  1609. 

16      ?     George  Chalmers. 

'•  Mr.  George  Chalmers,  Minister  at  Dumbennan,  burges  of  this  burght,  and 
sumtyme  one  of  the  Ministers  thairof  and  regent  in  the  said  College."  (T.  C. 
Reg.,  xlix.,  418,  27th  October,  1619.)  Kennedy,  misinterpreting  this  entry, 
gives  George  Chalmers  as  regent  in  1619.  It  is  remarkable  that  no  such  name 
occurs  in  the  list  of  incumbents  of  Aberdeen  charges  given  in  Scott's  Fasti. 
(Cf.  P.  H.  Chalmers'  Mem.  of  Information.) 



i6      ?     Andrew  Massie. 

Given  by  Kennedy  as  admitted  in  1623,  but  is  mentioned  in  decreet  against 
Menzies,  i6ig.  Signs  as  "  Logicae  Professor  "  {i.e.,  teacher  of  the  Semi 
class),  two  Epitaphs  in  the  Lachrymae  sub  Obitum  Georgii  Comitis  Mariscalli, 
Abred.,  1623 ;  and  6th  April,  1626  (together  with  Ogston,  Sibbald,  and 
Wedderburn),  an  assedation  to  David  Anderson.  {Buik  of  Reg.)  Andrew 
Massie  is  named  as  Oeconomus  in  a  Burgh  Court  Decree  of  igth  February, 
1622.  By  the  Foundation  Charter  the  Oeconomus  was  an  official  distinct 
from  the  Regents.  James  Forbes  of  TuUiboy  was  appointed  first  Oeconomus, 
i8th  June,  1593.  (T.  C.  Reg.,  xxxiv.,  854.)  Massie  and  Sibbald  are  made 
burgesses,  "ex  gratia,"  25th  Oct.,  1623.     (New  Spald.  CI.  Misc.,  I.)  Bajan,  1610. 

1619.  William  Ogston. 

Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Appointed  in  i6ig,  as  in  1626,  when  he  is 
transferred  to  the  Semi  class,  it  is  stated  that  he  has  taught  the  Tertians 
"  thir  sewin  yeeris  bygane  ".  In  the  latter  year  (apparently  succeeding 
Andrew  Massie),  he  received  a  presentation  to  the  Logic  professor- 
ship, "  the  key  of  the  whole  College  and  the  courss  throf  verie 
long  and  thairfoir  requyring  ane  learned  diligent  and  cairfull  maister

William  to  be  bound  ...  to  demit  the  said  second  class  absolutelie  and  to 
tak  him  to  the  third  class".  (Min.  of  Admission,  25th  October,  1626.  Mar. 
Coll.  Ch..  Ch.  "  Professorships,"  No.  i.)  Designated  "  Philosophiae  Moralis 
Professor"  {i.e.,  teacher  of  the  Tertian  class)  on  the  title-page  of  his  Oratio 
Funebris  in  Obitum  Georgii  Mariscalli  Comitis,  Abred.,  1623 ;  and  6th  April, 
1626,  signs  the  assedation  to  David  Anderson.  Promoted  to  be  minister  of 
Hailes,  1635.     {Hist,  of  Ogston  Families.)     Semi,  1605.     D.D. 

1620.  James  Sibbald. 

M.A.,  1618.  Signs  as  "  Philosophiae  Naturalis  Professor,"  an  Epitaph  in  the 
Lachrymae,  also  the  assedation  to  David  Anderson,  1626.  The  Professor  of 
Natural  Philosophy  taught  the  Magistrand  class,  and  Sibbald  was  the  first 
holder  of  the  office  of  fourth  regent,  instituted  ist  March,  1620,  when  the  newly 
appointed  Principal,  William  Forbes,  was  relieved  from  the  duty  of  teaching. 
Kennedy  gives  i6ig  as  the  date  of  Sibbald's  appointment,  but  this  is  certainly 
wrong.  Graduation  theses  maintained  under  his  presidency  are  extant  for  the 
years  1623  (Abd.  Univ.  Libr.),  1625  (Bodl.),  1626  (Bodl.).  In  the  last  of  these 
years  he  was  appointed  one  of  the  Ministers  of  Aberdeen.  B.D.,  King's  Coll., 
1627  ;  D.D.,  1628.  Sibbald  was  one  of  the  "  Aberdeen  Doctors".  In  addition 
to  his  graduation  theses,  he  contributed  a  Sermon  to  Forbes'  Fmierals  and 
wrote  Diverse  Select  Sermons,  printed  posthumously  at  Aberdeen  in  1658. 
(Scott's  Fasti  ;  Forbes'  Funerals,  ed.  1845.) 
16      ?     William  Wedderburn. 

Signs  as  "  Graecarum  Literarum   Professor"  {i.e.,  teacher   of  the    Bajan 



class),  verses  in  the  Lachrymae  and  the  Theses  of  1623 ;  also  the  assedation 
to  David  Anderson,  1626.  Promoted  from  a  regency  to  be  Minister  of  Bethelny, 
not  later  than  1633.  (Scott's  Fasti.)  He  was  brother  of  David  Wedderburn, 
the  Rector  of  the  Grammar  School  {Abd.  and  Bff.  Coll.,  p.  60),  and 
Alexander  Wedderburn. 
1626.     John  Seton. 

M.A.,  1616.  Succeeded  Sibbald  in  1626  (Kennedy  says  1636)  as  Professor  of 
Natural  Philosophy.  As  such,  signs  (together  with  Gordon,  Aidie,  and  Ray)  a 
Rectorial  minute,  14th  April,  1632  (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.  "  Rectors,"  2);  and  (with 
the  same  three)  is  mentioned  in  a  summons  raised  by  Sir  A.  Irvine  of  Drum,  1633. 
Graduation  theses  maintained  under  his  presidency  are  extant  for  the  years 
1627  (Bodl.),  1630  (Bodl.),  1631  (Abd.),  1634  (Bodl.),  1637  (Bodl.).  Promoted 
from  a  regency  to  be  Minister  of  Kemnay,  not  later  than  1641.  (Scott's 
16      ?     Hugh  Gordon. 

M.A.,  1623.  Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Writes  assedation  to  A.  Burnet,  12th  July, 
1630.    {Buik  of  Reg.)     Signs  as  Professor  of  Logic  the  Rectorial  minute,  and  is

163    ?     John  Ray. 

M.A.,  1625.  Given  by  Kennedy  under  year  1641;  but  signs  as  Professor  of  Moral 
Philosophy  {i.e.,  teacher  of  the  tertian  class),  the  Rectorial  minute  ;  also  an  Epi- 
taph in  the  second  Lachrymae,  1635 ;  and  a  discharge  of  College  accounts,  ist 
November,  1648.  The  Graduation  theses  of  1643,  maintained  under  his  presi- 
dency, are  extant  in  the  University  Library  ;  so  that  ere  then  the  system  of 
specialist  professors  must  have  been  abandoned,  and  that  of  circulating  regents 
introduced.  Editor  oi  Cicero' s  Epistolarum  libri  IV.,  Abred.,  1630,  1665.  "  He 
made  an  excellent  funeral  Oration  on  King  Charles  the  Martyr."  {Cat.  Scot.

163    ?     William  Blackhall. 

M.A.,  1631.     Not  in  Kennedy's  list.     Signs  as  Professor  of  Logic  an  Epitaph 
in  the  second  Lachrymae,  1635.     Evidently  succeeded  Hugh  Gordon.    Deposed 
as  a  Catholic,  1642.     (Spald.,  IL,  102.    Gordon's  Scots  Aff.,  III.,  129.) 
16      ?     James  Hay. 

Given  by  Kennedy  under  year  1636.     But  Aidie,  Blackhall,  Ray,  and  Seton 
were  then  still  in  office.     Tertian,  1618  [?]. 
16      ?     John  Menzies. 

Promoted  from  a  regency  to  the  chair  of  Divinity,  infra,  and  the  second 


ministerial  charge  in  Aberdeen,  1649,  and  to  the  incumbency  of  Greyfriars 
Church  in  the  following  year.     Kennedy  gives  his  name  under  the  year  1633, 
but  this  cannot  be  correct,  as  in  1635-37  ^^^  ^^^^  regencies  were  undoubtedly 
held  by  Aidie,  Blackball,  Ray,  and  Seton.     (Scott's  Fasti.)     Bajan,  1638  [?]. 
16      ?     Andrew  Youngson. 

Given  by  Kennedy  as  admitted  in  1645,  but  this  is  certainly  wrong,  for  on 
4th  Oct.,  1644,  "  Mr.  Andrew  Youngson,  formerly  a  Regent  in  the  Mar.  Coll.," 
is  elected  a  Regent  at  King's  College.  {Off.  and  Grad.,  p.  56.)  He  "  afterwards 
became  a  Papist  and  Jesuit,  and  a  Professor  at  Madrid  ".  (Knight.)  He 
must  have  succeeded  either  Blackball  or  Seton.  "  He  wrote  De  Predestina-

164    ?     Patrick  Sandilands. 

M.A.,  King's  Coll.,  1643.  Given  by  Kennedy  as  admitted  in  1646,  but  the  date  is 
almost  certainly  wrong,  for  on  24th  June  of  that  year  he  is  transferred  to  the

Sub-Principal  there  ;  Theses  of  1660  (Bodl.).     (Morgan's  Woodside,  p.  159.) 

164    ?     Robert  Forbes.

charges of  College  accounts  (together  with  John  Ray,  Robert  Burnet,  and  James 
Chalmers),  ist  November,  1648 ;  and  is  mentioned  in  Buik  of  Reg.  as  having 
charge  of  Bajan  class  of  1648-49.  His  name  appears  (with  those  of  Andrew 
Cant,  Alexander  Whyte,  and  George  Meldrum)  in  sundry  charters  granted  by 
the  Caroline  University,  1655-58;  and  (with  William  Meldrum,  George  Banner- 
man,  and  Thomas  Paterson)  he  signs  a  tack  to  Marjory  Jameson,  26th  June, 
1663.  (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.  Mass.  XH.,  69.)  He  is  named  (with  the  same  three) 
in  a  decreet  against  Mitchell,  2nd  Feb.,  1664.  On  24th  October  of  that  year  he 
appears  as  a  Regent  at  King's  College,  and  is  subsequently  Canonist  there.  {Off.

M.A.,  King's  Coll.,  1645.  Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Signs  College  accounts,

to  have  been  promoted  in  1651  from  a  Regency  in  King's  College  to  be 
Minister  of  New  Machar.  No  such  name  occurs  in  the  list  of  Regents  of 
King's  College.     {Off.  and  Grad.,  p.  56.) 

164    ?     Andrew  Cant. 

Given  by  Kennedy  as  admitted  in  1655  ;  but  is  mentioned  in  the  Buik  of  Reg.

58.  Theses  for  1654  (Bodl.),  and  1658  (Abd.).  "  He  wrote  a  Physical  Course

regency  to  be  Minister  of  Liberton  in  1659  (Scott's  Fasti),  and  Principal  of  the 
University  of  Edinburgh  in  1675  (Grant's  Story).  This  was  the  son  of  the 
famous  Andrew.  He  matriculated  at  Marischal  College  in  1640,  infra.  Joseph 
Robertson  says  of  him  {Deliciac  Litcrariae,  p.  25) :  "  He  lived  to  become  a  non- 
juring  bishop  ".  But  the  bishop  was  a  third  Andrew,  son  of  the  Regent's  brother,.

5th  March,  1667.  (Copy  of  Min.  in  Burgh  Ch.  Ch.,  "College,"  C.  7.)  The

1664.     John  Gordon. 

M.A.,  1658.  Not  in  Kennedy's  list.  Adm.  in  Accts.,  1664-65.  In  1664, 
Patrick  Strachan  complains  that  Gordon,  "  servant  to  Sir  Robert  Farquhar," 
has  been  admitted  regent  "in  lew  of  the  petitioner,  being  neither  cited  heard 
nor  advertised  of  ther  procedour  much  less  sentenced  or  censured,"  and  is 
"  endeavouring  in  a  most  subdolous  way  to  intrude  himself  in  the  place  whereof

thecar, 5th  March,  1667.  Theses  for  1669  (Abd.).  Present  at  Rectorial  elec- 
tions in  March,  1673,  and  March,  1674,  but  not  1675.  Became  Minister  of 
Glass,  1679.     {Scott's  Fasti ;   Roger's  House  of  Alexander.)     Bajan,  1660. 

166    ?     Robert  Bruce. 

Given  by  Kennedy  as  admitted  in  i658,  but  present  at  election  of  bibliothe- 
•  car,  1667 ;  also  at  Rectorial  elections  in  1673  and  1674,  but  not  1675.  Pro- 
moted from  a  regency  to  be  Minister  of  Old  Deer  not  later  than  1676  (Scott's 
Fasti),  probably  in  1674,  for  in  July  of  that  year  his  place  as  a  regent  had  been 
taken  by  John  Farquhar.  (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.  "  Librarian  ".  Cf.  Nos.  4  and  6.) 
He  is  called  "late  regent"  in  an  Instrument,  Seaton  divinity  student  agt.  the 
Magistrates,  2nd  July,  1674.     (Burgh  Ch.  Ch.  "College,"  C^  7.)     Bajan,  1661. 

1667.     Thomas  Gray. 

Given  by  Kennedy  as  admitted  in  1668  ;  but  is  named  as  teacher  of  Bajan 
class,  1667,  in  Buik  of  Reg.  Theses  for  1673  (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.).  He  is 
stated  in  them  to  be  a  grandson  of  Principal  Gilbert  Gray.  He  was  present  at 
the  Rectorial  election  of  that  year,  but  not  in  1674.  It  would  appear  from  a 
paper  in  the  Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.  ("  Professorships,"  No.  5)  that  Gray  taught 
the  first  class  for  three  successive  sessions,  and  thereafter  "  ascended  "  in  the 
usual  manner.  The  same  Thos.  Gray,  "  son  to  the  deceased  Provost  Gray," 
acted  as  College  Librarian  in  1669-73.     (T.  C.  Reg.,  Iv.,  158,  526.)     Bajan,  1660. 

1667.     Robert  Paterson. 

Given  by  Kennedy  under  year  i66g,  but  probably  succeeded  William  Pater- 
son in  1667.    Teacher  of  Bajan  class,  1671.    {Buik  of  Reg.)    Present  at  Rectorial 


elections,  1673  and  1674.     Promoted   to  the    Principalship,  p.  28,  20th  No- 
vember, 1678,  when  he  was  succeeded  by  Ja^ries   Lorimer.     Paterson  was  a 
younger  son  of  John,  Bishop  of  Ross.     (Nisbet's  Heraldry.)     Bajan,  1661. 
16      ?     John  Lorimer  [?J . 

Given  by  Kennedy  under  year  1672 ;  but  this  must  be  a  blunder,  as  Alex- 
ander, Bruce,  Gray,  and  R.  Paterson  were  in  office  during  that  year. 

1673.  George  Peacock. 

Given  by  Kennedy  under  year  1675,  but  seems  to  have  succeeded  Gray. 
Present  at  Rectorial  election,  March,  1674.  Teacher  of  Bajan  class,  1673-74.

Hardie.     Bajan,  1666. 

1674.  John  Farquhar. 

Given  by  Kennedy  under  year  1669,  but  this  is  manifestly  a  blunder,  as  he 
succeeded  Robert  Bruce,  probably  in  1674.  Present  at  Rectorial  election, 
March,  1675,  and  (with  William  Seaton)  homologates  Paterson's  election  as 
Librarian,  in  May  of  same  year.  (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.,  "  Librarian,"  No.  9.) 
Minister  of  Tron  Church,  Edinburgh,  1677.     (Scott's  Fasti.)     Bajan,  1664.

1679,  J^"-  ^6.     James  Lorimer,  student  of  theologie. 

In  place  of  Robert  Paterson,  promoted  to  be  Principal.  Lorimer's  is  the 
first  appointment  of  a  regent  recorded  in  the  "  Register  of  presentationes  and 
admissiones  of  all  principalis  and  maisteres  ".  The  letter  of  presentation  by 
George,  eighth  Earl  Marischal,  dated  15th  January,  is  engrossed.  The  ap- 
pointment is  "  for  this  present  yeir  of  God  underwritten  and  yeirlie  in  tyme

In  place  of  Robert  Farquhar,  demitted.  Promoted  to  a  regency  in  Edin- 
burgh, 1686,  as  a  reward  for  representing  (in  Theses  printed  at  Aberdeen  in 
that  year)  the  Reformation  as  a  villainous  rebellion,  and  asserting  that  the 
King  of  Scotland  had  the  power  of  making  and  abrogating  laws  and  imposing 
taxes  without  the  consent  of  Parliament.  In  1690,  because  of  the  very  same 
Theses,  he  was  deprived  of  his  regency  by  the  Commission  of  Visitation.

place  of  James  Moir,  lately  deceased.     Summoned  before  the  Presbytery  of 

^  Kennedy  has  a  yohn  Keith,  under  this  date,  who  does  not  appear  in  the  Register  ;  and 
Douglas  {Peerage,  ed.  of  1813,  II.  p.,  igo)  speaks  of  a  "  Professor  Thomas  Keith  of  the 
Marischal  College  " — equally  unknown.     See  Scottish  N.  and  Q.,  Jan.  1897. 


Aberdeen,  27th  Jan.,  1714,  for  adultery  with  Anne  Davidson,  a  married  woman. 
Refused  to  appear,  and  was  pronounced  contumacious.  On  loth  November, 
his  name  was  put  on  the  roll  of  excommunicated  persons.  (Presb.  Min.) 
This  seems  to  have  entailed  loss  of  his  regency. 

1715,  November  30.     William  Meston. 

M.A.,  1698.  "Late  Governour  to  the  honourable  Mr.  James  Keith  brother  ger- 
mantothe  EarleMarischal."  In  place  of  George  Keith,  "lately  removed  from  the 
said  office  ".  Several  of  the  admitters  were  absent  "  by  reason  of  the  disorders 
of  the  times  ".  Meston  gave  "  a  publick  oration  and  a  specimen  in  the  Greek 
tongue".  Deprived  in  1717,  he  seems  never  to  have  actually  taught,  for  in 
session  1715-16  "the  CpUedge  was  separat  before  the  Lawes  were  read  or  the 
season  of  payment  conrc"  {Coll.  Proc.  Accts.),  and  in  1716,  no  classes  assembled; 
but  in  1729  he  obtained  from  the  Town  Council  payment  of  salary  for  period 
from  Whitsunday,  1715,  to  Martinmas,  1716:  ;f82  ids.  Scots  (T.  C.  Reg.,  Ix., 
85).  The  notice  of  Meston  in  Diet.  Nat.  Biog.  is  incorrect  in  several  details. 
Cf.  the  sketch  of  him  (by  the  present  editor)  in  N.  and  Q.,  7,  X.,  21,  where  a 
bibliography  is  attempted.     Introduced  in  AUardyce's  Balmoral. 

1717,  Sept.  30.     Patrick  Hardie. 

In  place  of  George  Peacock,  deprived.    The  King's  commissions  bear  that 
each  regent  is  to  hold  office  "during  all  the   dayes   of  his  naturall   life". 
Hardie   died  1724.

Moral  and  Christian  philosophy,  L,onA.  1740;  Universal  law,  "LonA.  1741 ;  Collection 
of  ancient  paintings,  Lond.  1744.     LL.D.,  1727,  in  which  year  he  demitted  office. 
See  p.  95. 

1723,  September  6.     Thomas  Haddow,  professor  of  Greek. 

In  place  of  George  Cruden,  deceased.  This  is  the  first  mention  in  the 
Register  of  a  regent  allocated  to  the  teaching  of  Greek.  The  Parliamentary 
Commission  of  Visitation  appointed  in  1690  had  in  1700  issued  an  ordinance 
in  the  following  terms  : — 

"At  Edinburgh,  the  i6th  day  of  August,  1700  years,  the  commissioners  ap- 
pointed by  act  of  parliament  for  visitation  of  universities,  colleges,  and  schools 


taking  to  their  consideration  that  it  would  conduce  much  to  the  better  learning, 
and  for  the  improvement  of  the  study  of  the  Greek  tongue,  that  the  teacher 
of  the  same  in  the  first  of  the  four  classes  in  use  for  Greek  and  philosophy  in 
each  university  and  college  were  fixed,  and  not  ambulatory  as  now  he  is ;  do 
therefore  appoint  and  ordain  that  hereafter  the  said  teacher  of  the  Greek 
tongue  be  fixed,  and  continue  still  to  teach  the  same  in  the  said  first  class  to 
all  that  shall  come  to  learn  under  him  from  year  to  year,  as  constant  master 
of  the  said  Greek  language,  which  he  is  hereby  appointed  to  begin  to  teach  at 
and  after  the  first  day  of  November  through  the  whole  year,  untill  the  rising 
of  the  class  by  the  ordinary  vacation  ;  so  that  in  all  that  space  he  is  to  teach 
only  the  Greek  grammar  and  proper  Greek  authors,  without  teaching  so 
much  as  any  Structura  Syllogismi,  or  any  thing  else  belonging  to  the  course 
of  philosophy,  which  is  only  to  be  commenced  the  next  year  thereafter  ;  and 
this  act  and  ordinance  to  take  effect  after  the  first  of  November  next.  Likeas, 
for  the  encouragement  of  the  said  fixed  teacher  of  the  Greek,  it  is  hereby  ap- 
pointed that  no  scholar  bred  at  schools  in  Scotland  shall  be  admitted  to  learn 
philosophy,  or  any  part  of  the  course  thereof,  in  any  of  the  colleges  and  uni- 
versities, unless  that  he  have  learned  his  Greek,  at  least  for  the  ordinary  year 
under  the  said  fixed  Greek  master,  and  report  an  authentic  certification  thereon  ; 
and  this  provision  to  take  effect  for  and  after  the  year  1701,  and  no  sooner. 
And  for  the  better  executing  this  act  it  is  farther  enacted,  that  if  there  be  at 
present  any  vacancy  of  any  of  the  four  ordinarily  called  masters  or  professors 
of  philosophy  in  any  of  the  said  colleges  and  universities,  the  same  shall  be 
supplied  in  the  ordinary  manner  by  a  fixed  Greek  master,  who  is  to  remain  as 
said  is,  leaving  the  other  three  to  ascend  with  their  philosophy  classes  as  use 
is  ;  and  where  there  is  no  vacancy,  the  said  fixed  Greek  master  is  for  this  time 
to  be  chosen  by  the  faculty  (that  is  the  meeting  of  the  rector,  the  professors 
and  masters  of  each  of  the  said  colleges  and  universities)  out  of  the  masters, 
as  the  said  faculty  shall  determine,  which  they  are  hereby  ordained  to  do  be- 
twixt and  the  first  day  of  October  next.  And  the  Greek  master  that  shall  be 
chosen  hereby  is  ordained  to  obey  without  reclaiming,  with  this  provision 
nevertheless  for  his  encouragement,  that  it  shall  be  in  his  option,  upon  any 
vacancy  that  happens  of  any  of  the  said  three  philosophy  masters  in  his  col- 
lege or  university,  to  betake  himself  to  his  place  without  any  new  trial  ;  in 
which  case  the  vacancy  of  the  Greek  master  shall  be  supplied  by  one  to  be 
fixed  as  above.  And  the  commission  ordain  letters  and  charges  to  be  direct 
on  this  act  as  effeirs,  and  that  the  same  be  furthwith  printed  and  sent  to  the 
several  universities  and  colleges,  that  none  may  pretend  ignorance." 

On  26th  February,  1701,  the  Principal  and  Regents  wrote  to  the  Clerk  of  the 
Commission  : — "  We  did  lykwayes  give  tymous  obedience  to  the  Act  for  settling 
ane  Greek  Master  in  the  Colledges,  and  did  nominate  and  elect  Master  Alex- 
ander Moir  on  of  the  Regents  of  this  Colledge,  to  be  ane  fixed  Greek  Professor 
in  all  tyme  coming,  who  has  accepted  that  office  in  this  Colledge.  We  do  therfor 
intreat  ye  will  represent  this  matter  of  fact  to  the  Visitation,  when  they  do 



take  ane  revieu  of  this  matter,  and  show  how  readie  compliance  we  have  given 
heerin."    (Records  of  Visitation  in  Gen.  Reg.  Ho.) 

This  appointment  was  sanctioned  by  the  Commission,  14th  January,  1703  ; 
but  it  appears  not  to  have  become  operative,  for  the  Album  shows  Alexander 
Moir  in  charge  of  the  Magistrand  class  in  sessions  1702-3,  and  1706-7,  as  would 
have  been  the  case  under  the  old  four-year  cycle.  When  the  four  new  regents 
were  appointed  in  1717,  their  commissions  were  in  identical  terms,  but  seem- 
ingly Cruden  (whom  Haddow  is  said  to  succeed)  must  soon  thereafter  have 
been  set  aside  for  the  duties  of  a  Greek  chair.  The  admission  on  8th  Oct., 
1717,  of  Matthew  McKaile  to  the  Professorship  of  Medicine  (p.  55)  he  signs 
"  Geo.  Cruden,  P[hilosophiae]  P[rofessor]  "  ;  but  the  admission,  on  14th  April, 
1721,  of  George  Turnbull  to  a  regency  (p.  40)  he  signs  "Geo.  Cruden, 
L[iterarum]  G[raecarum]  P[rofessor] ".  If  Cruden  became  Professor  of 
Greek  soon  after  1717,  a  three-year  cycle  would  have  been  set  up  for  the  other 
three  Regents.     See  "  Sequence  of  the  Regents,"  Appx. 

Haddow  must  have  died  soon  after  admission.  He  held  a  certificate  "  of 
good  life  and  conversation  "  from  Mr.  John  Cormack,  minister  of  the  Gospel,

In  place  of  Haddow,  deceased.     Became  also  Principal  in  1748,  p.  29.

Theses,  1732  (Aberd.). 

In  1734  Duff  had  a  lawsuit  with  his  colleague,  Thomas  Blackwell.  On  Sun- 
day, 7th  January,  "  betwixt  the  hours  of  2  and  3,  in  the  College  Church,  dur- 
ing Divine  Service,  he  }ostled  and  pressed  violently  on  Mr.  Blackwell".  Next 
day,  when  Blackwell  was  teaching  in  the  Bajan  Class,  Duff  sent  William 
Fowler,  sacrist,  "  to  desire  him  to  come  out  and  speak  to  a  gentleman,"  and 
struck  him  on  the  head  with  a  staff  which  he  had  provided  on  purpose, 
"  having  come  without  his  gown,  which  he  had  put  off  for  that  effect  ".  Black- 
well  presented  a  "  Complaint  and  Libell  unto  the  Revd.  PrincipW  and  Masters 
met  in  faculty,"  which  Duff  requested  time  to  answer  ;  but  the  latter  passed  from 
one  delay  to  another,  and  finally  advocated  the  case  to  Edinburgh,  on  the  plea 
that  the  Masters  had  no  jurisdiction,  and  that  two  of  their  number  had  malice 
against  him.  It  was  agreed,  however,  to  submit  the  matter  to  the  Principal 
and  Mr.  Forbes,  Sheriff  Depute  of  Aberdeen,  who  settled  it  by  a  Decreet- 
Arbitral.  A  minute  of  Faculty  was  prepared  in  draft,  in  which  Duff  was  to 
acknowledge  the  jurisdiction  of  the  College,  ask  pardon  for  attacking  its  privi- 
leges, and  receive  a  rebuke  from  the  Principal.     He  was  at  first  fully  satisfied 



with  this,  and  showed  much  impatience  to  have  a  meeting  held,  where  it 
should  be  approved  ;  but  on  this  being  done  he  refused  to  submit,  and  insisted 
upon  his  Bill  of  Advocation.  The  outcome  of  the  proceedings  has  not  been 
traced — (Mem.  for  Duff,  21st  February;  Pet.  of  Duff,  24th  February  ;  Answ.for 
Blackwell,  25th  February  ;  Answ.for  Prin.  and  other  Masters,  23rd  July — printed 
papers  in  Town  House  Charter  Room). 

At  a  meeting  of  Faculty,  held  on  gth  February,  1736,  Duff  is  charged  with 
neglect  of  duty  and  "  with  quarrelling  upon  slight  and  trivial  occasions  with 
one  Master  after  the  other,  and  raising  litigious  and  expensive  lawsuits,  and 
with  instigating  the  students  to  illegal  and  hurtful  proceedings  and  undutiful 
conduct  to  their  masters  ".  At  Christmas  vacation  he  had  to  go  to  Edinburgh, 
and  did  not  return  till  6th  January  (the  vacation  ending  on  the  ist) ;  neglected 
his  duty  as  Hebdomader ;  refused  to  preside  at  the  public  disputes ;  and  on 
3rd  February  again  went  to  Edinburgh,  appointing  an  assistant  without  asking 
leave  of  the  College.  Blackwell  states  that  he  had  raised  criminal  actions 
against  all  his  colleagues,  and  calls  him  "  that  strange  unhappy  man". 

ist  March,  1736. —  Duff  protests  in  violent  language,  styling  the  minute  of  gth 
February  "a  pretended  calumnious  unsigned  lybel,"  of  which  a  copy  was 
refused  him. 

loth  March,  1737. — At  a  Rectorial  meeting  the  Principal  informs  the  Court 
that  he  has,  with  advice  and  consent  of  the  Faculty,  given  to  Regent  Duff  two 
admonitions  for  neglect  of  duty  and  other  irregularities.  The  Court  authorise 
the  Principal  to  give  him  forthwith  the  third  and  last  admonition,  in  terms  of 
the  Foundation  Charter. 

At  subsequent  meetings  evidence  is  given  of  Duffs  non-attendance  at  Col- 
lege for  two  years  :  Drs.  Campbell  and  Glennie,  then  students,  being  among 
the  witnesses.  On  20th  January,  1738,  sentence  of  expulsion  is  formally  pro- 
nounced. Duff  being  "  extruded  forth  and  from  the  said  University  and  Mari- 
schall  College,  and  his  said  office  and  employment  declared  void  and  vacant 
and  at  his  Majesty's  gift  and  disposal  as  patron  of  the  foresaid  University". 
(Papers  in  Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.,  "  Rectors  and  Rectorial  Courts  ".) 

Duff  went  to  London,  where  he  published  The  Case  of  William  Duff,  Profes- 
sor of  Philosophy  iu  the  Marischal  University  of  Aberdeefi ;  Slwwing  the  Barbarous 
Treatment  of  an  Honest  Family,  1739;  and  A  History  of  Scotland,  Vol.  I.  (all 
pubd.)  1750  (with  author's  portrait). 
1729,  Novemb.  25.     Dr.  Matthew  McKail. 

Previously  Professor  of  Medicine,  p.  55.  In  place  of  Daniel  Gordon,  de- 
ceased. Some  objection  seems  to  have  been  taken  to  the  admission  of  McKail, 
as  only  three  admitters  sign.  He  delivers  a  discourse  "  On  the  connexion  and 
difference  betwixt  the  atomic  or  Copernican  and  the  Newtonian  philosophy  ". 
Died  1733. 
1734,  March  26.     Francis  Skene. 

Son  of  George  Skene,  minister  of  Kinkell  (Skene  Memorials).     M.A.   King's 


Coll.,  1721.  In  place  of  McKail,  pn  whose  death  it  had  been  proposed  to 
revert  to  the  plan  of  the  Founder,  and  assign  the  three  higher  classes  to  par- 
ticular masters,  Verner  to  take  the  semis,  Duff  the  magistrands,  and  McKail's 
successor  the  tertians.  But  Skene  petitioned  against  this  (Min.  of  28th  June), 
and  his  objections  were  sustained.  When  the  new  plan  was  adopted  in  1753, 
he  was  assigned  the  Semis  Class.  LL.D.,  1766,  when  he  is  also  made  "Pro- 
fessor of  Laws"  (c/.  Min.  of  26th  Nov.,  1760).  Died  1775.  Portrait  in 
possession  of  University. 
1739,  April  10.     Alexander  Innes. 

Great  grandson  of  David  Gregory  of  Kinnairdie  {Off.  and  Grad.,  p.  37).  M.A., 
1732.  Had  acted  as  substitute  during  William  Duff's  absence,  sessions  1736-7, 
^737"8,  1738-9.  After  DufTs  deposition  on  20th  January,  1738,  the  Rector, 
Principal  and  Masters  appear  to  have  pressed  Innes'  claims  on  the  Chancellor, 
Lord  Hay,  but  without  effect  until  January,  1739,  when  he  recommends  them  to 
apply  to  the  Duke  of  Newcastle.  This  they  do,  igth  January,  calling  his  attention 
to  "  the  melancholy  situation  of  our  CoUedge  "  ;  but  at  the  same  time  resolve 
"to  fix  a  Program  to  the  College  and  kirk  doors  [cf.  Vol.  I.,  p.  45]  within  a  few 
days  in  order  to  secure  their  privilidges  ".  The  Duke  "  making  farther  delays 
and  offsets,"  they  resolve,  2nd  March,  to  act  on  the  program,  and  seek  the 
concurrence  of  the  Magistrates  in  case  the  election  should  be  called  in  ques- 
tion. On  19th  March,  the  edict  is  duly  "called,"  but  no  candidates  appear, 
^  and  they  intimate  to  Lord  Hay  that  they  have  put  off  the  election  till  loth 
April,  hoping  to  hear  from  him.  On  that  day,  having  no  letter,  they  elect 
Mr.  Innes.  It  is  claimed  that  this  is  competent,  from  there  having  been  no 
presentation  notified,  although  a  year  had  elapsed  since  the  vacancy  had  been 
intimated  to  the  Crown,  from  no  answer  to  letters  having  been  received,  from 
the  loss  sustained  by  the  College  in  wanting  a  Regent,  and  from  the  terms  of  the 
Foundation  Charter.  Lord  Hay  writes  on  23rd  April  that  he  had  received  the 
communication  of  7th  March  on  20th  April.  "  It  seems  instead  of  sending  it 
by  the  Post,  it  came  by  somebody  who  took  France  in  his  way."  He  chides 
the  Faculty  for  not  transmitting  to  Government  a  regular  copy  of  the  pro- 
ceedings against  Duff,  wonders  "  a  learned  body  did  not  better  apprehend  the 
meaning  of  sucH  notification,"  and  send  the  causes  of  deposition,  instead  of 
writing,  "  in  no  other  stile  than  if  Duff  had  been  dead  ".  The  Crown  ought  to 
have  known  the  whole,  as  a  mark  of  respect,  the  office  being  one  for  life. 
Duff,  he  adds,  "  has  been  a  considerable  time  about  town  making  a  noise  in 
all  the  offices  and  in  every  place  where  he  could  have  access  ".  After  this 
scolding,  Lord  Hay  becomes  kinder,  and  says  that  he  has  taken  their  part,  and 
told  everybody  that  "  DufTs  long  stay  in  this  London  and  the  unaccountable 
turn  of  his  temper  made  it  highly  probable  that  the  Faculty  had  done  nothing 
but  justice  ".  Blackwell's  reply  is  a  humble  palinode,  requesting  a  presentation 
for  Innes.     It  does  not  appear  that  this  was  ever  sent. 

We  learn  from  a  Memorial  to  the  Barons  of  the  Exchequer  that  Innes  "  was 
so  generous  as  to  permit  the  emoluments  of  the  class  [1736-39]  to  go  to  the 
support  of  Mr.  DufiPs  unhappy  relinquished  family  ".    He  died  in  1742.    (Coll.

William  Duncan,  professor  of  Natural  Philosophy  (tertians). 


I753>  Aug.  21.     Alexander  Gerard,  professor  of  Moral  Philosophy  and 
Logic  (magistrands). 
A  programme  of  the  classes  as  thus  arranged  appeared  in  the  Aberdeen 
Journal  of  2nd  Oct.    The  King's  College  professors,  while  adopting  the  altered 
sequence  of  subjects,  adhered  to  the  old  system  of  circulating  regents.     This, 
it  is  understood,  was  due  to  the  authority  of  Dr.  Thomas  Reid,  who  gave 
it  a  decided  preference.     The  grounds  on  which  so  enlightened  a  teacher  de- 
fended a  practice  that  once  extensively  prevailed  are  interesting.    The  minutes 
embodying  them  are  qubted  in  the  present  editor's  Arts  Curriculum,  Aberd.,

1833,  Nov.  12.     Thomas  Clark. 

M.D.,  Glasg.,  1831.  This  appointment  caused  much  dissension.  By  Mrs. 
Blackwell's  deed  of  Foundation  the  Principal  and  professors  were  directed  to 
fill  up  a  comparative  trial  of  candidates,  but  on  21st  Sept.,  1827, 
the  Commissioners  of  1826  expressed  doubt  as  to  the  right  of  the  principal  and 
professors  to  nominate,  and  directed  them,  in  the  event  of  a  vacancy  therein, 
to  intimate  the  same  to  the  Commission  if  then  in  force.  Intimation  was  sent 
to  the  Secretary,  but  the  Commissioners  proved  to  have  transmitted  their  final 
report,  and  the  faculty  accordingly  advertised  the  vacancy,  and  examiners 
were  selected — Professor  Thomson,  Glasgow  ;  Rev.  A.  J.  Forsyth,  Belhelvie  ; 
Professors  Davidson,  Skene,  and  Knight.  Three  candidates  appeared : 
Thomas  Clark,  William  Henderson,  M.A.,  M.D.  (who  had  acted  as 
assistant  to  Professor  French,  and  was  afterwards  Lecturer  on  Materia 
Medica),  and  William  Laing,  M.A.,  M.D.  (afterwards  Lecturer  on  Sur- 
gery). It  was,  however,  objected  that  Clark  being  only  M.D.,  had  not 
undergone  the  "  regular  academical  education  "  required  by  the  "  deed  of 
foundation,"  and  his  admission  as  a  candidate  was  carried  only  by  the  casting 
vote  of  the  Principal  ;  Professors  Black,  Glennie,  Knight  and  Brown  voting 
against  him.  Prof.  Knight  thereupon  declined  to  act  as  Examiner.  On  the 
conclusion  of  the  examination,  which  lasted  for  three  days,  the  examiners 
reported  unanimously  in  favour  of  Clark.  (Lengthy  Minutes,  20th  Aug.  to  12th 
Nov.,  printed  in  Appx.  to  Second  Report  of  1836-37  Commissioners,  pp.  212-

Lecturers  having  been  laid  before  the  Faculty  and  read,  they  unanimously  approve  of  the 
same  and  order  it  to  be  recorded  in  their  minutes,  whereof  the  tenor  follows  : — 

"Aberdeen,  May  16,  1818. — At  a  Meeting  of  the  Committees  of  King's  and  Marischal 
Colleges,  to  arrange  a  plan  for  the  establishment  of  a  Medical  School,  held  at  Marischal 
College,  16th  May,  the  following  regulations  were  suggested,  as  most  consistent  with  the  con- 
stitution of  the  Colleges,  and  best  adapted  to  promote  the  institution,  which,  under  the  joint 
patronage  of  the  two  Universities,  may  attain  a  greater  character,  and  be  more  extensively 
useful,  than  it  could  if  only  supported  by  one  of  them. 

"  I.  Both  Universities  to  have  equal  power  over  the  Medical  School. 

"  2.  Courses  of  Lectures  to  be  given,  during  the  Winter  Session,  on  the  following  sub- 
jects : — Anatomy,  Animal  Economy,  Surgery,  Practice  of  Physic,  Theory  of  Physic,  Materia 
Medica,  Clinical  Medicine,  and  Midwifery,  and  a  course  of  Lectures  on  Botany  during  the 

"  3.  Lecturers  on  these  subjects  to  be  appointed  or  confirmed  before  the  ensuing  Session, 
or  when  the  state  of  the  School  shall  be  thought  to  require  this  nomination. 

"  4.  As  the  appointment  of  the  Lecturers  by  a  general  meeting  of  both  Colleges,  having 
no  corporate  capacity,  might  not  be  deemed  valid  by  the  separate  Faculties,  it  is  proposed  that 
the  nomination  to  the  Lectureships  shall  belong  alternately  to  each,  neither  appointing  twice 
successively  to  the  same  Lectureship,  and  that  the  appointment  thus  made  by  one  College 
shall  be  confirmed  by  the  other  ;  both  Faculties  entering  a  regulation  in  their  minutes,  binding 
themselves  to  this  mode  of  alternate  nomination  and  mutual  confirmation. 

"  5.  Lecturers  having  been  named  by  Marischal  College  on  Anatomy,  Surgery,  and 
Materia  Medica,  before  the  present  plan  of  joint  patronage  was  thought  of,  it  is  recommended 
that  these  appointments  should  in  the  meantime  be  confirmed  by  King's  College,  and  that

Appointed  by  King's  Coll.,  for  one  year,  i8th  Oct.    Resigned  29th  June,  1820. 

1820,  Sept.  25.     Patrick  Blaikie  :  Surgery.

Surgeon,  Infirmary.

1827,  April  g.     William  Knight :  Botany.^ 

Professor  of  Natural  Philosophy,  p.  48.  Appointment  made  by  the  Joint 
Committee.  Knight  had  taught  a  private  Botanical  Class  in  1811-13,  1815, 
1816,  1823-26.     Demitted  1840. 

the  first  nomination  to  the  vacant  Lectureships  should  proceed  from  the  Faculty  of  King's 
College,  and  be  confirmed  by  Marischal  College. 

"  6.  In  case  the  Professors  of  Medicine  of  the  Colleges  should  at  any  time  wish  to  give 
Courses  of  Lectures,  it  will  be  advisable  to  reserve  the  Theory  and  Practice  of  Physic  for  them, 
the  choice  of  either  subject  lying  with  the  Professor  that  first  undertakes  the  duty  of  lecturing. 
The  appointment  of  Lecturers  on  these  subjects  may  therefore  be  considered  as  ad  interim. 

"  7.  Should  any  of  the  Lecturers  allow  a  Session  to  pass  without  giving  a  regular 
Course,  his  appointment  is  to  be  declared  void,  unless  he  shall  have  been  prevented  from 
doing  so  by  bad  health,  or  such  reasons  as  may  be  deemed  satisfactory  by  the  College  with 
which  the  next  nomination  to  his  lectureship  lies. 

"  8.  After  the  first  nominations,  when  a  vacancy  is  to  be  supplied  in  any  of  the  estab- 
lished Courses,  the  College  whose  turn  it  is  shall  appoint  a  Lecturer  within  six  months  after 
the  vacancy  has  occurred  ;  two  meetings  of  the  Faculty  having  been  held,  at  a  month's  interval, 
to  consider  the  best  mode  of  supplying  it,  and  the  claims  of  different  candidates. 

"  g.  To  facilitate  the  arrangements  necessary  in  opening  and  conducting  the  different 
Courses,  it  is  recommended  that  a  Standing  Committee  be  appointed  by  each  of  the  Faculties, 
to  co-operate  in  superintending  and  promoting  the  objects  of  the  Institution  ;  and  that  a  Report 
of  the  state  of  the  Medical  School  be  made  at  least  once  a  year,  by  this  Joint  Committee,  to 
a  General  Meeting  of  the  Faculties  of  both  Universities."

1830,  April  3.     Alexander  Ewing  :  Surgery. 

Confirmed  by  King's  Coll.,  i6th  Apr.  "  1834,  March  15.  Some  of  Dr. 
Ewing's  students  prosecute  him  before  the  Sheriff  for  £8  6s.  8d.  damage  in 
bilking  them  of  i  of  a  course  of  surgery.  He  began  Nov.  4  and  their  ruffing, 
which  he  mistook  for  applause,  made  him  end  12  March,  giving  only  58  meet- 
ings, of  which  only  41  available  in  a  certificate,  17  being  examinations.  He 
had  been  absent  27  times,  besides  raising  his  fee  from  2  to  3  guineas.  The 
action  before  Sheriff  Watson  amuses  the  public  and  frightens  him  ;  he  re- 
sumes teaching,  gets  the  Principal  to  go  with  him  to  his  class,  where  Dewar 
blames  him  in  his  own  presence.  In  April  he  terminates,  turns  restive,  and 
sends  long  letters  to  the  Senatus,  wishing  to  know  whether  they  account  his 
course  complete  now  :  to  which  such  answers  as  they  deserved  were  sent. 
Dr.  Ewing's  class  had  been  most  disorderly,  a  subject  being  sometimes  placed

ance of  the  advertisement  of  the  classes  of  the  Joint  Medical  School  which  had  been  annually 
sanctioned  for  the  twelve  preceding  years.  This  refusal  was  mainly  based  on  the  contention 
that  the  King's  College  Senatus  should  have  been  consulted  as  to  the  amount  of  accommoda- 
tion allotted  to  Medical  Classes  in  the  new  buildings  of  Marischal  College,  in  terms  of  Article 
10  in  the  agreement  entered  into  by  the  Universities  in  1818,  as  recorded  in  the  Minutes  of 
King''s  College,  on  6th  July  of  that  year,  viz. : — 

"  10.  An  equal  number  of  classes  to  be  taught  at  each  University,  if  required,  and  deemed 
expedient  by  either.  In  the  mean  time,  as  a  room  has  been  built  at  Marischal  College  for  the 
Anatomical  Lectures,  and  as  great  difficulties  attending  the  due  supply  of  preparations,  etc., 
would  be  increased,  by  changing  the  place  of  teaching,  the  Anatomical  Course  may  be  given

at  Marischal  College — the  other  Courses  at  King's  or  Marischal  Colleges,  as  may  be  agreed 
on  by  the  Committee." 

This  entry  did  not  appear  in  the  corresponding  Marischal  College  Minute  of  19th  May, 
1818,  but  was  duly  intimated  by  King's  College  to  the  Commissioners  of  1826-30.  {Evidence, 
IV.,  180.) 

On  20th  November,  1838,  Mar.  Coll.  resolved  to  enquire  of  King's  Coll.  "  whether  they 
possess  any  original  paper  from  which  the  regulations  in  their  minute  of  6th  July,  1818,  were 
copied  ".  King's  Coll,  not  unnaturally  resented  this  enquiry  as  equivalent  to  demanding  a 
proof  that  their  records  "  had  not  been  vitiated  ".  A  copy  of  the  ten  regulations  in  the  hand- 
writing of  Dr.  Skene  was  produced  by  King's  Coll.  ;  but  "  only  two  gentlemen  who  had  a 
share  in  the  business  of  this  [Marischal]  University  in  iSiS  are  now  alive  and  their  recollec- 
tions do  not  supply  any  information  respecting  the  tenth  article  ". 

On  nth  April,  1839,  the  King's  Coll.  Senatus  unanimously  resolved  "  that  all  connection 
with  the  Marischal  College  in  reference  to  the  Medical  School  shall  cease  from  and  after  the 
close  of  the  Session,"  it  being  "  inexpedient  and  even  dangerous  to  maintain  any  further  inter- 
course with  Marischal  College  respecting  the  Medical  School,  when  the  letter  and  spirit  of 
the  original  agreement  have  been  so  palpably  violated  ".  The  Mar.  Coll.  Senatus,  while 
denying  *'  the  allegation  that  they  have  violated  either  the  letter  or  the  spirit  of  the  original 
agreement,"  and  finding  "  a  much  nearer  resemblance  to  a  violation  of  that  agreement  in  the 
refusal  by  members  of  King's  College  or  its  Senatus  to  sanction  the  usual  advertisement  of 
the  Medical  Classes,"  unanimously  resolved,  on  nth  July,  "  that  the  agreement  entered  into 
by  the  two  Colleges  in  1818  in  regard  to  the  Medical  School  and  all  the  arrangements  de- 
pending upon  that  agreement  are  terminated  ".  Extracts  from  their  Records  were  printed  by 
both  Colleges.

"  At  the  Marischall  Colledge  29  Oct  1684 

"  The  which  day  compeired  William  Main,  Bouer,  burges  of  Abd,  and  pro- 
duced an  presentation  from  an  noble  and  potent  lord  George  Earle  Marischall, 
Lord  Keith  and  Altrie,  undoubted  patron  of  the  sd.  Colledge,  to  be  Janitor  in 
the  sd.  Colledge  ;  the  which  presentation  the  Prinll.  and  Regents  did  accept, 
and  having  found  him  qualified  for  the  sd.  office  and  given  him  the  oath  de 
fideli  administratione,  did  admitt  him  to  the  sd.  office  and  to  all  the  profeits

place  forsd 
{Buik  of  Reg.)  "  [signed]        Ro  Paterson,  principall." 

In  1697,  Main  is  designated  Sacrist.  A  year  after  he  was  appointed 
Janitor,  we  find  him  mortifying  some  house  property  towards  the  support 
of  a  bursar  of  his  own  kin,  the  augmentation  of  the  salaries  of  the  Principal 
and  Regents,  and  the  reparation  of  the  fabric  of  the  College  (Vol.  I.,  p.  328). 
John  Davidson  appears,  1688-1720,  as  "  porter,"  a  term  now  used  to  denote 
the  sacrist's  subordinate ;  so  Alexander  Brebner,  under-porter,  1706-20,  and 
porter,  1720-47.  John  Gibb,  porter,  1747-53.  Other  under-porters  were : 
James  Walker,  1709  ;  Peter  Robertson,  1713  ;  James  Silver,  1739 ;  Samuel 
Duncan,  1744. 
1719.     William  Fowler. 

Died  1753. 

^  This  term  does  not  occur  in  the  Foundation  Charter,  but  every  student  is  directed  to 
pay  two  shillings  yearly  to  the  "  communis  apparitor  "  or  "  bedellus  ". 



1753,  April  10.     John  Gibb.

Died  1837,  "  a  good  servant  "  (Knight).  James  Bain,  porter  1808,  "  repri- 
manded and  cautioned  1815,"  "  general  conduct  complained  of  and  repro- 
bated "   1819,   *'  unanimously  dismissed  "   1826.      James  Diack,  porter  1826- 


1837,  Sept.  16.     James  Diack. 

Died  1843.     John  Cooper,  porter  1837-43,  had  been  sub-porter  1836-7. 

1843,  April  7,     John  Cooper. 

Died  1873.  John  Colvin,  porter  1843,  succeeded  Cooper  as  Sacrist  at 
Marischal  College  in  1873  ;  at  King's  Coll.,  1879 ;  resigned  1891  ;  died  1895  ; 
portrait  by  A.  D.  Reid  in  possession  of  University.  (See  "/o/t»,"  his  pilgrimage 
and  his  portrait,  Aberd.,  1892.)  The  reign  of  John  Cooper  and  John  Colvin 
extended  over  fifty-four  years  ;  that  of  John  Thomson,  John  Smith,  and 
John  Begg,  at  King's  College,  over  sixty-six  years;  so  that  the  name  John 
came  to  be  regarded  as  a  generic  vocative  for  all  college  servants. 








1724.     Calder.2 

So  Knight ;  but  the  entry  in  the  Accounts,  "  Parchment  for  Mr  Gaidar's 
diploma  12/-,"  does  not  seem  necessarily  to  indicate  a  degree  in  divinity. 

1733.     "  Price  of  a  Doctor  of  Divinity  gifted  to  the  College  by  Principal 
Osborn  £20  st."     The  graduate  was  "  an  English  Divine  ".

The  well-known  Dissenting  minister,  Northampton,  author  of  Hymns 
and  various  theological  works.  (Diploma  voucher  of  27th  May ;  "  paid 
for  writing,  parchment  and  a  box  £\  8s.".)  He  had  D.D.  from  King's 
College,  5th  July,  1737,  and  observes  : — "  I  am  just  going  to  write  a  letter  of 
thanks  to  the  College  at  Old  Aberdeen,  who,  that  my  name  may  not  be  at  all

1736.     John  Milner. 

Dissenting  minister,  London  ;   author  of  many  works. 

Abraham  Taylor. 

Dissenting  minister,  Deptford.     (Diploma  voucher  of  31st  July.) 

Alexander  Cruden  (of  the  Concordance,  then  a  bookseller  in  London  :  see 
Vol.  L,  p.  444)  writes  5th  Aug.,  1736,  to  Principal  Osborn, 

"  I  received  on  the  2d  current,  Mr  Milner's  Diploma  with  a  Letter  from  Mr 
Verner  to  Dr  Anderson  and  self.  The  Doctor  has  prevailed  so  far  as  to  get 
£1^  for  the  Diploma,  which  I  received  Yesterday,  and  he  thinks  he  deserves 
for  this  and  all  his  good  services  a  Couple  of  Pieces,  and  had  a  sort  of  a  pro- 
mise from  me  to  write  you  so  much.  .  .  .  Dr.  Doddridge  was  lately  in  Town 
and  he  gave  me  five  Guineas  as  an  Acknowledgment  for  his  Diploma.  I  sug- 
gested to  him  pretty  plainly  that  it  was  too  little,  but  he  said  that  he  had  a 
great  Family,  etc.,  and  this  was  all  I  could  get  from  him.  Please  to  let  me 
know  whether  I  shall  remit  these  five  Guineas,  or  if  you  have  occasion  to  lay 
it  out  here.  Dr  Doddridge  has  promised  to  be  a  friend  to  your  College.  He 
has  ordered  me  to  bind  3  or  4  Volumes  of  his  Sermons  in  a  very  handsome 
manner  for  your  Library,  which  I  propose  to  send  by  C.  Keith.  I  sent  down 
an  Attestation  of  the  Revd.  Mr  Abraham  Taylor  of  Deptford,  to  obtain  the 
Degree  of  D.D.  from  you  and  the  College.  It  is  unknown  to  him.  I  will  en- 
gage that  he  is  worthy  of  it,  for  he  exceeds  all  the  Dissenting  Ministers  of  my 
acquaintance  for  Learning,  and  his  character  is  every  way  entire.  He  has  been 
Author  of  several  things,  particularly  2  vol.  in  8vo.  agt.  Arianism.  It  is  designed 
that  a  Diploma  shall  be  obtained  for  Mr  Taylor  in  one  or  other  University. 
I  hope  no  further  Delay  will  be  made  in  this  affair.  I  daresay  he  will  make  a 
much  more  handsome  Remembrance  to  the  University  than  Dr  Doddridge 
has  done."    (Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.,  "  Correspondence,  8  ".)

was  honoured  with  the  degree  of  Doctor  in  Divinity,  an  honour  which,  though 
he  thought  it  improper  to  solicit,  he  judged  it  his  duty  to  accept,  when  offered 
in  so  very  obliging  a  manner.  In  his  reflections  on  it  he  says  : — '  I  pray  God 
I  may  not  be  elevated  by  any  acceptance  my  labours  meet  with,  but  that  I  may 
proceed  with  humility,  diligence  and  integrity  in  the  whole  of  my  life '."

by  Rev.  Professor  Pirie.  On  i6th  Feb.,  he  had  given  notice  of  a  motion  "  that  no  person  shall 
receive  a  degree  of  D.D.  or  LL.D.  in  this  University  who  does  not  possess  decided  eminence 
and  excellence  of  a  distinctly  scientific  and  literary  character,  as  distinguished  from  mere 
popular  qualifications  and  social  respectability,  or  excellence  of  any  kind  not  properly  aca- 
demical".  This  intimation,  however,  was  withdrawn,  23rd  Feb.,  on  the  appointment  of  a 
Committee  to  consider  the  question.  The  Committee  seems  never  to  have  reported  on  D.D.

"The  Faculty  being  duly  and  met    and  constitute,  compeared  Mr  James

the  degree  of  Doctor  of  Laws  in  this  University,  and,  if  found  qualifyed, 
craved  that  he  might  be  honoured  with  that  degree  ;  Which  request  the  Faculty 
finding  highly  reasonable,  and  from  their  personall  acquaintance  with  him 
being  fully  satisfied  of  his  moral  character,  he  was  examined  and  tryed  ac- 
cordingly by  Dr  Verner  by  the  appointment  of  the  Faculty,  and  being  found

On  2nd  October,  1765,  Thomas  Gray,  the  poet,  writes  from  Glamis  Castle

"  I  must  beg  you  would  present  my  most  grateful  acknowledgments  to  your 
society  for  the  public  mark  of  their  esteem,  which  you  say  they  are  disposed 
^  See  footnote  as  to  honorary  degrees,  p.  83, 


to  confer  upon  me.*  I  embrace  with  so  deep  and  just  a  sense  of  their  good- 
ness the  substance  of  that  honour  they  do  me,  that  I  hope  it  may  plead  my 
pardon  with  them  if  I  do  not  accept  the  form.  I  have  been,  Sir,  for  several 
years  a  member  of  the  University  of  Cambridge,  and  formerly  (when  I  had 
some  thoughts  of  the  profession)  took  a  Bachelor  of  Laws  degree  there  ;  since 
that  time,  tho'  long  qualified  by  my  standing,  I  have  always  neglected  to  finish 
my  course,  and  claim  my  Doctor's  degree.  Judge,  therefore,  whether  it  will 
not  look  a  slight,  and  some  sort  of  contempt,  if  I  receive  the  same  degree  from 
a  Sister  University.  I  certainly  would  avoid  giving  any  offence  to  a  set  of 
men,  among  whom  I  have  passed  so  many  easy,  and  I  may  say,  happy  hours 
of  my  life  ;  yet  shall  ever  retain  in  my  memory  the  obligations  you  have  laid 
me  under,  and  be  proud  of  my  connection  with  the  University  of  Aberdeen."

1  "  There  were  probably  no  degrees  granted  till  after  1700  and  the  appointment  of  a 
Professor  of  Medicine.  Attestations  from  two  or  three  physicians  continued  to  be  the  practice 
for  a  long  time.  Cases,  &c.,  sent  to  the  candidate  for  solution,  in  several  instances.  No  cer- 
tain account  of  theses  being  written  or  required  [See  1784,  1791,  1820].  .  .  .  Till  1794,  Nov. 
20,  the  diploma  was  granted  in  the  name  of  the  Professor  of  Medicine,  the  rest  signing  it.  Pro- 
fessor Stuart  introduced  a  new  form  in  the  name  of  the  Principal  and  Professors."     (Knight.) 

The  names  of  the  earlier  graduates  were  taken  by  Professor  Knight  from  entries  of 
payments  for  medical  degrees  in  the  College  Accounts.  It  seems  not  unlikely  that  certain 
other  payments,  not  explicitly  for  medical  degrees,  were  really  made  by  M.D.'s.  Thus  Mr. 
Matthew  Mackaile  (M.A.,  1708,  and  Professor  of  Medicine  in  1717)  pays  £4.  in  1711  "for 
diploma  " ;  and  in  the  same  year  Mr.  Gilbert  Cuming,  and  his  brother  Mr.  George  Cuming, 
pay  £30  los.  "for  diplomas".  So  in  1713,  Mr.  Alex.  Lauson ;  in  1714,  Mr.  John  Anderson, 
Mr.  William  Duguid,  and  Dr.  Chalmers'  son ;  and  in  17 15,  Mr.  John  Irvin.  See  all  these 
entries  quoted  infra,  under  "  Graduates  in  Arts". 

The  form  of  diploma  used  by  Professor  James  Gordon  (1734-55)  ran  as  follows.  The 
entries  in  square  brackets  are  amendments  introduced  (by  Professor  Beattie)  for  Professor 
Alexander  Donaldson  (1755-93).

[William]  Boddum  [sic]  of  Mecklenbergh-Strelitz. 

Drs.  Saunders  and  Leo.  N.B.  Discovered  to  be  the  Empiric  Brodum  from 
inattention  of  Dr.  Leo.  "  Dr.  Saunders  told  me  that  he  was  deceived  by  Dr. 
Leo,  a  Jew  living  in  his  neighbourhood,  with  regard  to  Brodum  on  his  first 
arrival  in  London.  I  believe  there  was  no  great  deception  in  the  case.  At 
least  Dr.  S.  appeared  to  have  given  himself  no  trouble  in  making  the  neces- 
sary examination  before  granting  the  certificate,  wishing  to  oblige  the  Jew, 
and  caring  very  little  for  the  reputation  of  Marischal  College.     C.  S." 

[In  1801,  Brodum  applied  for  a  new  diploma,  saying  he  had  lost  his  former 
one.  The  College  denied  that  any  one  had  been  granted  him,  the  name  being 
Boddum  in  Dr.  Donaldson's  Catalogue.  He  recovered  his  diploma,  however, 
and  sent  it  to  Mr.  Chalmers,  printer,  his  quack  medicine  vendor,  when  the 
College  had  the  mortification  to  see  the  name  properly  written,  and  the  di- 
ploma perfectly  regular.  The  opinion  of  Solicitor-General  Blair  was  taken  as 
to  the  power  of  the  College  to  degraduate  Brodum  for  "  notorious  and  impu- 
dent quackery,  .  .  .  and  the  immoral  tendency  of  many  passages  in  his  vari- 
ous publications  ".  Mr.  Blair  held  it  "to  be  clear  that  an  Incorporation  has 
by  law  no  power  to  expel  its  own  members.     For  altho'  the  admission  of  a 


member  most  commonly  proceeds  upon  an  act  of  the  incorporated  body,  yet 
after  being  so  admitted,  the  privileges  which  he  thereby  acquires  become  a 
matter  of  civil  right  or  property  which  cannot  be  taken  from  him,  except  upon 
legal  grounds  and  by  the  sentence  of  a  competent  Court.  Universities  stand 
indeed  upon  a  footing  somewhat  different  from  other  Incorporations,  in  so  far 
as  the  original  constitution  of  the  University,  whether  created  by  foundation 
charter  or  otherwise,  most  commonly  delegates  to  the  Rector  or  some  other 
officebearer  in  the  University  a  jurisdiction  over  its  own  members,  which  im- 
plies a  power  of  expulsion  where  there  is  sufficient  cause  for  it.  And  the 
foundation  charter  of  the  Marischal  College  of  Aberdeen  seems  to  bestow  upon  the 
Rector  a  power  of  jurisdiction  sufficiently  ample  for  this  purpose.  Altho'  it  is 
rather  an  unfavourable  circumstance  that  no  one  instance  can  be  found  of  the 
rectoral  jurisdiction  having  been  exercised  to  the  effect  of  recalling  the  degree 
of  Doctor  of  Medicine  once  bestowed,  either  in  the  University  of  Aberdeen,  or 
in  those  of  Edinburgh  or  St.  Andrews,  which  are  expressly  referred  to  in  the 
charter.  .  .  .  The  distinction  between  a  Quack,  that  is  to  say  a  person  who 
takes  it  upon  him  to  practise  physick  without  having  received  a  proper  educa- 
tion and  without  being  graduated  Doctor  of  Medicine,  and  a  regular  Physician 
who  has  been  bred  to  the  business  and  authorised  to  practise,  is  very  well 
known.  But  amongst  those  who  have  received  the  degree  of  Doctor  of 
Medicine  from  an  University  entitled  to  grant  such  degrees  (which  is  the  case 
of  Dr.  Brodum),  I  do  not  know  exactly  where  the  line  is  to  be  drawn,  or  what 
degree  of  ostentation  or  ignorance  is  to  fix  upon  a  gentleman  of  this  descrip- 
tion the  imputation  of  Quackery,  so  as  to  afford  a  legal  ground  for  depriving 
him  of  his  degree.  .  .  .  The  memorialists  will  consider  therefore  whether, 
under  all  the  circumstances,  it  may  not  be  most  prudent  for  them  to  submit 
in  silence  as  they  have  hitherto  done,  to  a  very  unpleasant  mortification,  and 
rather  endeavour  if  possible  to  draw  good  out  of  evil,  by  making  the  case  of 
Dr.  Brodum  a  lesson  of  caution  and  circumspection  to  themselves  for  the 
future,  in  the  bestowing  Academical  honours."  Mar.  Coll.  Ch.  Ch.,  "  Rights

remained  in  force  till  1825. 

"  Regulations  with  respect  to  the  mode  of  conferring  Medical  Degrees. 

"  I.  No  person  shall  be  received  as  a  candidate  for  the  degree  of  M.D.  unless  he  have 
laid  before  the  Senatus  Academicus  satisfactory  evidence  of  his  possessing  a  good  and  re- 
spectable character,  and  of  his  having  received  a  liberal  education. 

"  II.  No  person  shall  be  received  as  a  candidate  for  the  degree  already  mentioned  until 
he  have  produced  to  the  Senatus  Academicus  certificates  of  his  having  attended  a  course  of 
lectures  in  Anatomy,  Chemistry,  Materia  Medica,  Practice  of  Physic  and  Botany  (if  he  has 
had  an  opportunity  of  studying  the  branch  last  mentioned)  at  some  University  or  celebrated 
School,  under  Professors  or  Teachers  of  reputation. 

"  III.  In  every  case  where  the  candidate  for  a  degree  in  Medicine  shall  happen  to  be  in 
Aberdeen  or  at  a  convenient  distance  from  that  city,  he  shall  be  required  to  appear  before  the 
Senatus  Academicus,  and  in  their  presence  be  examined  by  the  Medical  and  other  professors 


that  the  application  had  taken  place  before  the  certifiers  could  be  made  ac- 
quainted with  the  regulations  ".     (Min.)]

on  the  different  branches  of  Medical  Science,  on  his  knowledge  of  the  Greek  and  Latin  lan- 
guages and  on  such  other  branches  of  literature  as  they  shall  see  proper. 

"  IV.  When  the  candidate  for  a  degree  in  Medicine  is  so  circumstanced,  by  reason  ot 
his  distance  from  Aberdeen,  that  he  cannot  appear  in  person  to  be  examined,  he  may  be 
recommended  and  attested  by  two  Physicians.  In  this  case,  these  Physicians  must  them- 
selves be  regular  graduates  in  Medicine  ;  they  must  be  known  either  personally  or  by  reputa- 
tion to  the  Professor  of  Medicine,  or  to  some  of  the  members  of  the  Faculty  ;  and  they  must 
attest  that  what  is  contained  in  the  first  and  second  regulations  is,  in  all  respects,  applicable 
to  the  Candidate ;  that  they  have  examined  him  on  the  different  branches  of  Medical  Science 
and  are  satisfied  by  his  answers  that  his  acquirements  are  such  as  to  entitle  him  to  the  degree 
of  M.D.  ;  or  in  cases  where  from  distance  of  place  such  examination  cannot  be  obtained, 
that  they  have  been  long  personally  acquainted  with  him,  and  know  that  his  medical  education  is 
as  has  been  above  specified,  that  he  has  been  for  years  in  established  practice  as  a  Physician, 
and  in  that  capacity  has  rendered  himself  useful  and  respectable. 

"  V.  When  the  candidate  has  been  settled  for  years,  and  still  is  in  respectable  medical 
practice,  in  the  East  or  West  Indies  or  other  foreign  parts,  so  that  his  situation  precludes 
his  presenting  himself  for  examination,  either  at  Aberdeen  or  by  the  attesting  physicians  ;  in 
such  cases  the  attestations  shall  bear,  in  the  most  ample  terms,  that  the  candidate's  moral 
character  is,  and  his  education  has  been  such,  as  are  prescribed  in  the  first  and  second  regula- 
tions ;  that  his  practice  has  rendered  him  useful  and  respectable  in  his  profession ;  and  that 
the  attesters  know  him  to  be  in  all  respects  worthy  of  the  degree  which  he  solicits. 

"VI.  Every  Candidate  for  a  Medical  degree,  if  required,  shall  declare  and  promise  that 
he  neither  has,  nor  at  any  future  period  of  his  life  shall  have,  the  smallest  connection  with 
vending,  or  patronizing  in  the  way  of  trade,  any  patent  Specifics  or  Drugs,  or  what  are  com- 
monly called  Quack  Medicines,  nor  allow  his  name  to  be  used  in  any  advertisements  or  publi- 
cations of  that  nature ;  and  that  before  receiving  his  degree  he  shall  present  to  the  Faculty  a 
formal  letter  to  the  above  purpose. 

"  VII.  No  degree  of  M.D.  shall  be  granted  til!  the  Senatus  Academicus  have  taken  into 
consideration  the  character  and  qualifications  of  the  candidate  at  two  different  meetings  to  be 
held  at  the  interval  of  fourteen  days  ;  except  in  cases  of  urgency,  which  cases  shall  be  deter- 
mined by  the  Faculty."

1  On  2ist  January,  1825,  a  Sub-Committee,  appointed  by  the  Medical  Committees  of 
King's  and  Marischal  Colleges  {supra,  p.  66),  reported  in  favour  of  certain  changes  in  the 
method  followed  since  1808  in  conferring  degrees  in  Medicine.  On  7th  March  the  Marischal 
College  Senatus  approved  this  report,  with  some  slight  modifications,  and  ordered  the  new 
regulations  to  be  printed  as  follows : — 

"  I.  Every  Person  offering  himself  as  a  Candidate  for  the  degree  of  M.D.,  shall,  ist, 
produce  satisfactory  evidence  of  his  possessing  a  good  character,  and  of  his  having  attained 
the  age  of  twenty-five  years  ;  and,  adly,  shall  lay  before  the  Senatus  Academicus  Certificates 
of  his  having  obtained  the  Degree  of  A.M.  in  this  or  some  other  University,  after  the  usual 
examinations  ;  of  his  having  attended  Courses  of  Lectures  on  Anatomy,  Surgery,  Chemistry, 
Materia  Medica,  the  Theory  and  Practice  of  Physic,  and  Botany,  in  this  Or  some  other  Uni- 
versity, or  celebrated  School,  under  Professors  or  Teachers  of  reputation  ;  and  of  his  having 
attended,  for  three  or  more  years,  a  Medical  Hospital,  containing  the  average  number  of  at 
least  eighty  Patients. 

"  II.  After  the  Senatus  Academicus  shall  have  been  fully  satisfied  on  the  above  pre- 
liminary points,  the  Applicant  shall  be  received  as  a  Candidate  for  the  Degree  of  M.D. ;  and 
shall  be  required  to  appear  before  the  Senatus  Academicus,  during  the  month  of  April  or 
October ;  and  in  their  presence  be  examined,  by  the  Medical  and  other  Professors,  on  the 
different  branches  of  Medical  Science, — on  his  knowledge  of  the  Greek  and  Latin  Languages, 
— and  on  such  other  branches  of  Literature  as  they  shall  see  proper.  If  fully  satisfied  with 
the  qualifications  of  the  Candidate,  the  University  shall  confer  on  him  the  Degree  which  he 

•'  III.  When  an  applicant  for  the  degree  of  M.D.  has  been  settled  for  ten  years  as  a 
Medical  Practitioner,  and  is  still  in  respectable  medical  practice  in  Britain,  in  the  East  or 
West  Indies,  or  other  Foreign  parts,  and  is  entirely  precluded  by  his  situation  from  presenting 
himself  for  examination ;  in  such  cases,  before  he  be  received  as  a  candidate,  there  shall  be 
laid  before  the  Senatus  Academicus  satisfactory  evidence  of  his  having  been  ten  years  a  Medi- 
cal Practitioner,  and  of  his  still  continuing  to  be  in  respectable  medical  practice, — of  his  hav- 
ing obtained  the  Degree  of  A.M.  in  some  University,  after  the  usual  examinations, — of  his

[F.R.C.P.  Ed.,  1845.] 
July  31.     Richard  Carswell. 

Hon.     Surgeon,  London,  "  who  has  greatly  distinguished  himself  by  his  re- 
searches respecting  Pathological  Anatomy  ...  on  the  motion  of  Sir  James 

having  attended  the  above  specified  courses  of  lectures, — and  either  of  his  having  a  Surgeon's 
diploma  from  the  Royal  College  of  Surgeons  of  London,  Edinburgh,  Dublin,  or  Glasgow,  or 
of  his  having  been  regularly  educated  in  the  Medical  School  of  Aberdeen.  After  the  Senatus 
Academicus  shall  have  been  fully  satisfied  on  these  points,  such  person  may  be  received  as  a 
candidate  for  the  degree  of  M.D.,  and  if  he  shall  then  produce  attestations  from  two  Phy- 
sicians who  are  themselves  regular  graduates  in  Medicine,  and  known  either  personally  or  by 
reputation  to  the  Professor  of  Medicine,  or  to  some  of  the  Members  of  the  Senatus,  bearing  on 
their  honour  and  conscience,  that  they,  from  full  knowledge,  certify  the  said  Candidate  to  be 
of  irreproachable  moral  character,  respectable  and  useful  in  his  profession,  and,  in  their  judg- 
ment, well  qualified  in  every  respect  to  have  the  highest  degree  in  Medicine  conferred  on  him, 
the  University 'may  in  such  circumstances  bestow  on  the  candidate  that  degree. 

•'  IV.  These  regulations  are  not  to  be  understood  as  precluding  the  University  from 
conferring  Honorary  degrees  in  Medicine  on  highly  distinguished  individuals,  who  cannot  be 
expected  to  comply  with  them,  and  whom  it  would  be  improper  to  subject  to  them  ;  but  in  all 
such  cases  the  degree  shall  be  conferred  unsolicited  and  free  of  expence. 

•'  [As  the  requisition  respecting  the  degree  of  A.M.  might  prove  injurious  to  some  medical 
students,  whose  education  is  now  in  progress,  were  it  to  take  effect  immediately,  it  is  resolved 
that  it  shall  not  come  into  force  till  the  year  1830.] " 

On  27th  April  it  was  unanimously  resolved  "  That  the  third  regulation  with  respect  to 
the  mode  of  conferring  Medical  degrees,  inserted  in  the  Minute  of  the  7th  March,  shall  be 
rescinded,  and  that  in  future  every  candidate  for  the  Degree  of  M.D.  from  this  University 
shall  be  required  to  appear  personally  and  submit  to  an  examination  in  presence  of  the  Uni- 

"  A  mistake,"  observes  Professor  Knight,  "  was  soon  discovered  of  a  practical  kind. 
The  age  of  25  was  allowed  to  remain,  whereas  it  ought  obviously  to  have  been  altered,  so  as 
to  agree  with  that  followed  by  all  other  Universities  of  Scotland.  This  age  was  also  unneces- 
sary, when  examination  was  required.  It  was  still  more  so,  because  we  required  along  with 
it  the  degree  of  A.M.,  which  Edinburgh,  Glasgow  and  St.  Andrews  did  not  [tho'  King's  Coll. 
did :  Off.  and  Grad.,  p.  160].  It  proved  injurious  to  our  own  alumni,  who  went  to  graduate 
at  Edinburgh,  after  taking  A.M.  at  our  strict  Examinations  in  Mar.  Coll. :  about  10  or  12 
M.D.'s  of  Edinburgh  1825-35  were  alumni  of  ours.  It  was  injurious  to  all  who  went  abroad 
after  ending  their  medical  education,  since  they  could  not  be  expected  to  return  to  Aberdeen 
from  situations  in  distant  parts,  or  to  stay  in  this  country  till  they  were  25." 

The  personal  examination  cause  prevailed  very  gradually.  Dr.  William  Cullen,  feeling 
the  reproach  in  1774,  drew  up  a  memorial  blaming  in  severe  terms  the  practice  of  Aberdeen 
and  St.  Andrews.  The  Duke  of  Buccleuch,  to  whom  Cullen  submitted  this  memorial,  gave 
it  to  Adam  Smith,  who,  in  a  long  letter,  defended  the  practice,  and  contended  {ox  free  trade 
in  degrees  in  a  very  pleasant  way.    (Thomson's  Life  of  Culleii,  I.,  468-72.)

Drs.  Macrobin  and  Clark,  to  frame  new  regulations  for  M.D.  After  much  discussion,  and 
without  the  consent  of  King's  College,  a  set  of  regulations  was  approved  and  printed  in 
April,  1838,  the  age  being  reduced  to  21,  but  the  degree  of  M.A.  being  retained. 

2  After  the  quarrel  with  King's  College  in  1839  (supra,  p.  69),  and  the  dissolution  of  the 
Joint  Medical  School,  each  University  framed  new  regulations  for  M.D.  For  King's  Coll.,

they  have  long  regarded  a  high  standard  of  preliminary  education  as  desirable  for  graduates 
in  medicine  .  .  .  that  they  long  entertained  the  hope  that  a  degree  in  Arts,  or  a  standard  in 
merit  approaching  thereto,  as  recommended  by  the  Royal  Commission  of  Visitation  of  1826- 
30,  would  ere  now  have  been  required  in  candidates  for  medical  degrees  in  all  the  Universities  of 
Scotland ;  that  the  University  of  Old  Aberdeen,  which  at  one  time  required  such  a  standard, 
has  recently  receded  from  it ;  that  the  University  of  St.  Andrews  has  made  no  approach  to 
the  proposed  standard  ;  while  the  Universities  of  Edinburgh  and  Glasgow  continue  to  subject 
candidates  to  a  preliminary  examination  in  Latin  only  ;  and  that  having  had  the  unanimous 
opinion  of  their  medical  professors  and  lecturers,  that  so  high  a  standard  of  preliminary  ex- 
amination as  is  desirable  cannot,  while  other  Universities  do  not  concur  in  it,  be  maintained 
without  serious  injury  to  the  medical  school  of  this  University — they  feel  themselves  com- 
pelled to  adopt  a  lower  standard.  .  .  .  Also  having  before  them  the  unanimous  recommenda-

OF    THE 





?iiDtograviir«  by  An 



"  Robert  Gordon  of  Straloch,  who  was  the  first  Master  of  the  liberal  arte 
created  in  the  Marishalls  College  of  Aberdeen  [presumably  in  1597],  and  one 
of  the  Cheife  Barrons  of  the  name  of  the  noble  and  ancient  families  of  the 
Gordons  in  the  north  part  of  the  Kingdom.  He  wrote  learnedly  on  the 
Mathematicks,  and  drew  severall  geographical  maps  of  almost  all  the  counties 
and  shires  in  the  Kingdome  of  Scotland."  (Cat.  Scot.  Writers.)  Born  1580. 
Portrait  by  Jamesone  in  Robert  Gordon's  College,  Aberdeen,  reproduced  in 
this  volume.     [Diet.  Nat.  Biog.     Spald.  Club  Misc.,  I.,  29.] 

Another  name  is  preserved  in  the  Town  Council  Register  for  31st  July, 
1601  (Vol.  XL.,  p.  loi),  when  Mr.  James  Robertson,  student  of  1595-99, 
assigns  the  arrears  of  a  "  pension "  of  twenty  merks  granted  him  by 
Principal  Howie. 

Among  probable  early  students  of  note  are  Thomas  Reid  (p.  31) 
and  David  Wedderburne  (p.  63),  who  were  appointed  teachers  in  the 
Grammar  School,  6th  Feb.,  1602;  Patrick  Dun  (pp.  10,  28,  32);  Patrick 
Copland,  benefactor  (Vol.  I.,  p.  160);  Thomas  Reid's  brother.  Dr.  Alexander 
(Vol.  I.,  pp.  226-236) ;  Andrew  Ramsay  (Vol.  I.,  p.  186),  professor  of 
divinity,  Saumur  and  Edinburgh,  and  Latin  poet ;  and  Gilbert  Jack, 
professor  of  philosophy,  Leyden  (Vorst's  Oratio  funehris).  Arthur  Johnston, 
the  poet,  born  circa  1577  {Musa  Lat.  Aberd.,  H.,  xxvii.),  and  Rector  of 
King's  College,  1637,  had  probably  studied  at  the  sister  University  ;  and, 
notwithstanding  the  comments  of  Mr.  Bulloch  in  his  George  Jamesone, 
pp.  38-41,  there  is  no  proof  that  the  painter  attended  either  college.

'  These  entries  are  taken  from  the  original  record,  which  now  forms  part  o(  Album  I. 
The  names,  except  where  otherwise  indicated,  are  autograph.  In  the  MS.  no  special  order 
is  at  first  traceable  in  the  signatures  of  each  year,  but,  for  convenience  of  reference,  it  has 
been  thought  desirable  to  adopt  from  the  outset  the  alphabetical  arrangement  under  prenames, 
not  under  surnames,  which  afterwards  became  characteristic  of  the  Marischal  College  registers. 
The  first,  undated,  group  of  names  appears  to  include  entrants  of  different  years  prior  to  1605, 
and  probably  subsequent  to  1598,  when  Gilbert  Gray  became  Principal.

Cum  a  Ministris  Baliuis  et  Senatu  presente  Episcopo  eodemque 
domino  Cancellario  deliberaretur  quae  post  obitum  D.  Mri  Gilberti 
Graij  primarij  ratio  esset  iucunda  tempore  interregni  vt  sarta 
tecta  maneat  Academiae  disciplina  quoad  creetur  Primarius

Dauid  Vedderburnus  interregni  huius  tempore  ad  Cal.  Augusti 
Anno  dni  1615  cumque  postulante  hoc  senatu  id  oneris  suscepisset 
statutum  vt  in  tempus  supra  prefinitum  Primarij  partes  tum  in 
summa  classe  docenda  tum  in  publica  Academiae  disciplina  pro-

mario  reverentiam  obedientiam  et  gratitudinem  prestent  discipuli

Ab  iisdem  etiam  cautum  est  vt  Regentibus  debita  exhibeatur  obedientia 
et  reverentia  ab  omnibus  promiscue  classibus  eoque  magis  illis 
obsequium  prestetur  quo  maior  temporis  huius  necessitas  hoc 

Ab  eodem  etiam  coetu  statutum  ne  cui  discipulo  arma  aut  arcum  ferre 
aut  priuatim  vspiam  recondere  liceat  ac  ut  preceptores  per  singula 
cubicula  attente  et  diligenter  in  ea  inquirant  et  si  qua  ab  in- 
quirentibus  deprehensa  vt  non  solum  iuxta  academiae  leges  delin- 
quens  plectatur  sed  et  arma  confiscentur  sine  vlla  prorsus 

Statutum  etiam  ne  quis  maledicum  carmen  aut  libellum  famosum 
conficiat  aut  confectum  conficiendumve  promulget  vel  cum  alio 
quoquam  recitando  legendo  aut  impertiendo  communicet  sed 
repertum  ita  supprimat  ne  in  aliorum  manus  postea  vllatenus 
veniat :  qui  secus  faxit  loco  autoris  ipsius  habitum  eum  iri  ac  pro- 
inde  iisdem  poenis  quae  ipsi  maledici  carminis  artifici  debeantur 

Cumque  disciplinae  neglectus  nimis  quam  invaluerit  per  hoc  temporis 
quo  haec  statuta  decretum  ibidem  vt  tum  in  has  publicis  tabulis 
iam  insertas  tum  in  reliquas  omnes  academiae  leges  discipuli 
omnes  solenniter  iurent  et  religiose  vt  restaurata  deinceps  disci- 
plinae iam  collapsae  integritate  bonarum  literarum  studiis  morum-

Menzies,  Dr.  Wm.  Forbes,  "rectori  magnifico,"  and  Wm.  Guild.  The  Theses  for  1624  have 
not  been  traced,  and  so  with  many  subsequent  years,  but  there  can  be  little  doubt  that  from 
1622,  when  Edward  Raban  began  his  work  in  Aberdeen  {Off.  and  Grad.,  p.  183),  down  to  at 
least  1732,  infra,  hardly  a  year  passed  without  a  print  of  Marischal  Coll.  Theses  appearing 
from  the  local  press.  Unfortunately  not  a  third  of  these  have  survived.  The  Aberdeen 
University  Library  possesses  only  thirteen  (1623,  1631,  1643,  1658,  1659,  1660,  1669,  1673, 
1700,  1704,  1708,  1726  and  1732) ;  while  the  Bodleian  has  fourteen  (1625,  1626,  1627,  1630, 
1634,  1637,  1654,  1656,  1657,  1687,  1689,  1693,  1699  and  1714) ;  Glasgow  University  three

'  From  the  printed  Theses  of  1673,  Mar.  Coll.  Charter  Chest :  a  folio  broad-sheet  printed 
on  satin  with  illuminated  border — probably  the  copy  intended  for  the  Earl.  The  Dedication, 
"  Georgio  Comiti  Mariscallo  Patrono  et  Maecenati  suo  perpetua  fide  colendissimo,"  runs  as 
follows  : — 

"  Nobilissime  Comes.  Dum  Thesibus  hisce  nostris  in  publicum  prodeuntibus  patronum 
quaero,  neminem  praeter  inclytam  celsitudinem  vestram  inter  homines  reperio,  sub  cujus  patro- 
cinio  in  lucem  emitterentur.  Quis  quaeso  mihi  indignetur,  quod  te  unum  ex  omnibus  com- 
pellem  ?  Quin  potius  aequissimo  jure  censebor  egisse,  quod  te  tam  egregium  elegerim 
patronum,  prosapia  et  natalium  splendore  nobilem,  nulli  tota  Scotia  procerum  stemmatis 
antiquitate  cedentem,  a  mille  namque  et  pene  sexcentis  retro  annis,  in  hodiernum  usque 
diem,  Dei  gratia,  summorum  hujus  regni  principum  cognationibus  semper  innexus  perdurus. 
Certe  nobilissimi  viri  Rob.  Kethi  praeclara  encomia  (ob  singularem  ejus  virtutem,  qua  Camum 
Danorum  ducem  fudit  fugavitque)  Annales  Scotici  non  tacent.  Neque  inclyti  ducis  Rob. 
Kethi,  qui  amisso  patre,  et  magno  propinquorum  numero,  in  pugna  Duplinensi,  sumptis 
armis,  strenue  suorum  cladem  ultus,  Perthum  urbem  ab  hoste  insessam  cepit,  moenia  diruit, 
soloque  aequavit.  Anno  Christi  1332.  Fragranti  etiam  memoria  est  Georgius  avus  tuus, 
qui  Rage  lacobo  delegatus  in  Daniam  suis  splendori  et  ornamento.  At  plus  tibi  laudis  ad- 
fert,  (Clariss.  Maecenas)  quod  ab  iis  sis  oriundus,  qui  Mariscalli  magistratum  decursu  con- 
tinue septingentorum  annorum,  summa  cum  fide  gesserunt.  Sed  quorsum  tuorum  majorum 
amore,  et  virtutibus  enumerandis  abducor,  an  quia  non  est  quod  de  te  dicam  ?  Nequaquam, 
eadem  tibi  virtus,  (Nobiliss.  Comes)  modo  qualia  iis  tibi  pariter  contigissent  tempora.  Tes- 
tantur  id,  turn  eximiae  et  heroicae  admodum  illae  virtutes  (generositas,  magnanimitas, 
animi  aequitas,  constantia,  fides)  quae  tanquam  natura  in  te  amicissime  con- 

spirare  videntur.  Tum  singularis  ilia  comitas  qua  omnes  demereris,  devincis,  omnium  bene- 
volentiam  amoremque  concilias.  Modestiam  tuam  laedere  metuerem,  si  diutius  indubitatae 
tuae  laudis  praeconio  immorarer,  unum  me  posse  adjicere  posse  arbitror.  Summam  esse 
saeculi  nostri  foelicitatem,  quod  tu  alter  Georgius  exoriaris  qui  musas  tuas,  et  causam  esse 
quoque  mihi  specialem,  quod  rem  geram  tuis  auspiciis,  quia  sciz,  tuus  ille  magnus  avus,  D. 
Gilbertum  Graium  avum  meum  ejusque  fratrem  Patricium,  adeo  humaniter  benevoleque  ex- 
ceperit  et  ilium  Gymnasiarchae,  hunc  praeceptoris  albo,  in  celebri  tua  Academia,  inter  varios 
quam  meritissimos  inseruerit,  quodque  tu  me  obstringere  pergas,  dum  in  eadem  Regentis 
fungi  officio  permittis,  quod  licet  non  promerear,  ingratus  tamen  videbor,  nisi  aliquo  argu- 
mento  quantumvis  exiguo  me  tibi  probarem.  Digneris  itaque  (Nobiliss.  Comes)  Theses 
hasce  nostras  nominis  tui  splendore  collustratas,  libenti  animo  suscipere,  cum  desunt  mihi 
alia  grati  animi  specimina,  quae  tanto  reponerem  patrono.  Vale  Nobiliss.  Comes.  Deus 
op.  max.  te  incolumem  diu  conservet,  ad  foelicitatem  splendidissimae  tuae  familiae,  Reip. 
utilitatem,  et  Academiae  tuae  bonum."

^  This  is  the  opening  entry  in  Album  II.  All  the  entries  down  to  1770  are  in  the  same 
handwriting.  Several  of  the  early  lists  are  obviously  copied  from  the  printed  Theses  (as  in 
1704,  1708,  1712,  1721,  1726,  1730,  1732 — still  extant),  others,  according  to  Knight,  "from 
names  placed  on  the  panels  of  the  window  sides  of  the  College  Hall.  .  .  .  Each  regent  re- 
corded [in  the  Theses]  his  own  class  in  the  Magistrand  year,  adding  to  the  list  all  the  students 
who  had  attended  any  one  of  the  four  years."  See  1700,  p.  275.  The  graduates  are  not 
marked  "  A.M."  till  1742.  The  letter  g  appended  to  a  student's  name  (1698-1749)  implies 
that  he  came  from  the  Grammar  School  (see  1692) ;  the  numerals  i.,  ii.,  iii.,  iv.  (1698-1714)  imply 
that  he  paid  chamber  maills  as  a  student  of  the  first,  second,  third,  or  fourth  year  respectively.

William,  ninth  Lord  Marischal.  Lord  Keith,  who  was  then  a  boy  of  fourteen,  about  to  enter 
College,  is  addressed  by  Professor  Smith  in  highly  eulogistic  terms.  "  Te  ex  praenobili  ac

"  Candidati,"  those  "  qui  idem  stadium  philosophicum  cum  illis  ingressi  sed  curriculum

^  In  session  1772-73  the  records  in  Album  II.  become  much  fuller,  the  parentage  of  the 
students  being  given.  The  members  of  the  Class  of  1769-73  are  entered  only  as  magistrands  ; 
those  of  1770-74  only  as  tertians  and  as  magistrands ;  of  1771-75  only  as  semis,  as  tertians  and 
as  magistrands  ;  of  1772-76  only  as  bajans  and  as  magistrands  ;  of  1773-77  only  as  bajans,  as 
tertians  and  as  magistrands.  In  the  Class  of  1774-78  and  in  all  later  classes,  the  records  of 
the  bajans,  semis,  tertians,  and  magistrands  are  practically  complete.  To  obviate  undue  re- 
petition, a  student's  name  is  printed  only  once  for  any  Class,  and  to  it  are  suffixed  the  letters 
b,  s,  t,  m,  and  A.M.,  according  as  the  Album  shows  him  to  have  been  a  bajan,  semi,  tertian 
or  magistrand  of  that  Class,  or  to  have  graduated.  Occasionally  a  student,  entering  College 
with  a  certain  Class,  pretermits  attendance  for  a  session  or  more,  and  reappears  as  a  member 
of  a  later  Class.  The  names  of  the  bajans  of  a  Class  are  printed  first  in  the  usual 
alphabetical  order  of  prenames.  Then  follow  the  additional  semis,  the  additional  tertians  and 
the  additional  magistrands,  each  forming  a  separate  alphabetical  arrangement,  and  having 
suffixed  figures  and  letters  with  the  usual  significance.  From  1772  to  1787  the  entries  in  the 
Album  are  almost  always  holograph  of  the  students.  (See  details  in  Preface.)  The  names 
of  Honorary  Masters  of  Arts  are  added  from  the  Minutes  and  Accounts.

*  The  names  of  the  semis  of  1774-75  are  not  recorded.  The  Album  list  of  tertians  of 
1775-76  is  imperfect.  The  entries  in  brackets  [<]  are  taken  from  the  signatures  appended  to  a 
letter  addressed  to  Professor  Patrick  Copland  by  the  members  of  his  first  class,  which  is  other- 
wise of  interest  as  fixing  the  date  when  Latin  ceased  to  be  used  colloquially  in  the  College. 

"  Hond.  Sir, 

"  Uncertain  whether  at  the  coming  public  examination  you  propose  to  examine 
the  students  of  this  class  in  the  Latin  language,  or  to  deviate  from  a  custom  which  we  appre- 
hend has  not  many  cogent  reasons  to  support  it,  we  beg  leave  respectfully  to  lay  before  you  our 
sentiments  on  this  subject,  hoping  you  will  condescend  to  consider  and  (should  it  appear 
reasonable)  comply  with  the  subsequent  request.  We  beg  leave  to  observe  that  speaking 
Latin  is  not  commonly  considered  as  a  necessary  branch  of  education  ;  we  are,  indeed,  in- 
structed to  read  and  write  that  language  with  propriety ;  but  to  speak  it,  and  that  fluently, 
would  be  a  very  difficult  attainment,  a  faculty  of  no  material  use,  and  what  we  may  venture 
to  assert  very  few  are  possessed  of.  The  public  examination,  we  apprehend,  is  intended  to 
prove  what  proficiency  we  have  made  in  Natural  Philosophy,  not  in  the  Latin  Tongue :  would 
it  not  then  be  unjust  that  by  reason  of  an  inferior  degree  of  knowledge  in  that  language,  or 
probably  from  an  accidental  want  of  expression,  any  one  of  us  should  incur  the  reproach  of 
ignorance  and  inattention,  when  possibly  that  very  person  may  have  applied  himself  most 
diligently  to  the  subject  we  have  been  studying  ?  In  fine,  that  the  possibility  of  this  and  other 
disagreeable  consequences  may  be  removed,  and  that  this  class  may  not  labour  under  a  dis- 
advantage from  which  every  other  is  now  exempt.  With  due  deference  to  your  superior 
judgment,  we  make  this  unanimous  request  that  we  may  be  examined  in  no  other  than  our 
native  language  ;  and  in  return  for  this  condescension  we  hope  to  evince  that  the  care  and 
attention  you  have  bestowed  in  instructing  us  have  not  been  ineffectual." 

The  "  public  examination  "  referred  to  was  not  the  graduation  examination,  for  some 
account  of  which  see  infra,  1821-25.
